Default Bounce to disk: Asio4All vs Interface as Playback Engine

A client hit me up and needs a few easy revisions to a radio edit version of his track I did earlier. I'm not at the studio now but do always keep my backup hard drives with me and my laptop with pro tools 12 on it. My question is, after I make the changes, if I bounce to disk with Asio4All V2 selected as the playback engine (because I do not have an interface with me), will the quality be different or the same as if I had my interface selected as the playback engine when bouncing? I guess the simple version of what I'm trying to ask is, does the playback engine selected affect the quality of the bounce to disk? Thanks in advance for all input

Unless you have some hardware inserts, the interface should have zero effect on the sound of your bounce(because audio doesn't pass thru it in the BTD process).

Thanks for answering that as it is something I have thought about from time to time when I go from the TF5 to the UR44.... The UR44 doesn’t sound near as good to my ears. But it is hardy to use from time to time...
