Default Interface advice for Native

Coming from PT HD3 Accel 10 (which will keep for tracking on Mavericks drive) & just upgraded to PT Ultimate 2019.10 Native (which will use for mixing on Sierra drive).

Want to keep 2012 Mac Pro 5,1/64/3.43 12core cheese grater & since the PCI slots are taken want to know what hardware is recommended for Native.

Possibilities I've thought of include:
Apogee Symphony w/ Dante (via Ethernet)
Lynx HiLo via USB
Any others?

I've been using RME UFX's (MK1 & MK2). Excellent drivers and work well with PTU. Just remember the 32 I/O limit (though you do mention you are using it for mixing)
Also note that in conjunction with Totalmix (included) and the RME Advanced Remote Control, you don't need any other monitor controller... even for surround options.

Won't work - the OP is on a cheesegrater and hence no Thunderbolt ports.

I would suggest that since you are only tracking with HD, to ditch one of the DSP cards and get a USB3 card in there. That way you can hook up a UFX+.
Or depending on the HD interface you are using you could get a RME-Raydat PCIe card and hook up your converters to that.
Try to stay away from Firewire interfaces.

this x1billion. PCIe RayDAT is an absolute diamond of an interface. And with PCIe staying in the new mac pro, it should hold it's value and continue to be updated driver-wise for a long time.

Metric Halo ULN8 - excellent, extremely powerful interface with built in monitor control and can connect to your machines either over USB or Ethernet.

Nope. No Thunderbolt protocol with old macs. No adapters will work.
