Question about Tracktion 2 plug-ins when it's bundled with hardware

I want to get Tracktion 2. It's $150 and you get all the plug-ins.
I use a Line 6 TonePort ux2 recording interface. The features of it are on the right column.
http://www.line6.com/toneport/hardware.html

I saw though that for $150 you can also get the Tapco link.usb interface with Tracktion 2 software. http://www.tapcoworld.com/products/linkusb/index.html

But when i look at the plug-ins sheet on Mackie's site it shows this bundled version of Tracktion 2 is missing a lot of plugins & towards the bottom it says you have to buy the boxed version of tracktion 2 to download all the new plugins.

So my question is, are the plugins worth it? Or is the tapco interface worth it over my line6 interface. I'm very new at this so I have no idea which way to go. Thanks for the help!

Re: Question about Tracktion 2 plug-ins when it's bundled with hardware

I use Tracktion2 and really like it, I have all the plug-ins and mostly they are pretty good, I'm not a big fan of the Slayer plug-in nor am I an Amplitube fan, but some of the other ones are nice, I specifically like RMIV, haven't used many of the mixdown ones yet. The Tapco interface doesn't look like it has anything over the Line6 (at a glance anyway).

It's kinda up to you to decide which will be more helpful to you, the plug-ins or another interface, sorry, I don't know which way to advise you. I will say that Tracktion is a great program and easy to use. I also have Logic Platinum and can get as results just as good from Tracktion but quicker because of the interface.
