Two interfaces, one Logic session

If I used my Apollo Twin X in Logic as my primary interface, would it be possible to save the project then reboot with a different interface with ultra-low latency just to record through an AU Amp and FX plugin, then reboot again with the Apollo back in place. Would this cause problems?

Alternatively, I could import the whole session into a second computer using that other interface, record the guitar parts I needed, then open that saved project back on the original computer.

The third and most expensive solution is to sell the Twin X and buy an X4 or X6 (I could use this as an excuse to get the mic free) and link the two cards digitally, using the Apollo as a virtual dynamics/effects/mastering processor and the other interface as my primary audio interface

There's no need. You can get plenty low enough latency for native amp sims with Apollo. You can get as low as about 4ms at 48kHz. Just mute the channel in Console and turn off IDC.

Really? Man you may have just saved me a £££. Although now I have no excuse to get the free Sphere LX 😭
