Probably a stupid question: Why do you want to use FX and EQ from the desk? Any modern DAW (and plenty of free plugins) should provide those manipulations, right?

I’d only record dry inputs to the DAW and do anything there. Full automation, not depending on external gear, no affected by any loopback latency issue etc…

Only if you need a particular _external_ FX which does not exist as plugin latency may be a concern (DAW->USB->DAC->ExternalFX->ADC->USB->DAW). But even if this is not correctly handled by the DAW and the ASIO-Driver (should communicate the latency with the DAW), you can still shift the re-recorded track accordingly (that’s what I did in very early days).
