With good VST channel strips you can achieve better and more flexible sound processing capabilities than with any hardware based digital mixer.
I run microphone correction plugins in every channel, and speaker-correction plugins in every monitor and main output.
The (actually with cable measured) 5.6 ms roundtrip latency (ASIO-Buffer size = 64 samples) was not yet noticed by the musicians, otherwise they complain, especially percussionists get confused from noticeable delay in the monitor path.

Multitrack-recording records the raw signal pre-FX, so the FX can be changed afterwards entirely when mastering.

Short answer: yes, use it for your purpose, you'll never find a better and more reliable solution. (Make sure your Windows services are stripped down to the bare minimum, if you use Windows)
Thats a great detailed info.
Can you tell us what converters are you using ?
I recently adquired the Merging Anubis and planning on doing some live things with Reaper and Anubis. DJ (LR) and a microphone using the Antares access auto tune plugin (0 samples low latency plugin). I can get has low as 2.1 ms Latency @ 48KHz .Maybe ill dig in to the HAPI range of products later on.
Intel core i7 6700K - socket 1151 LGA - Chipset z170 - 16G DDR4 - Nvidia GTX 1060 -Merging Anubis converter
