Don't waste your limited life span with such questions and possible
workarounds, since it's not worse the effort, assuming making music
should be your aim. Get a class compliant USB device and ignore all
those special offers, just use a modern PC + the audio interface as a
class compliant audio interface and don't use the audio devices hardware
monitoring and any additional features. _Simply_ use a mixing console
for the monitoring or use software monitoring with less latency. You
need to weighing up your "available lifetime" with "computer geek
trendy" vs "the passion to make music".
