Efficient Overbridge Usage in Ableton

I’m trying to center my Elektron composition in Ableton. Overbridge/External instruments all over the place using A4/DN/DT

It’s my understanding that I need Ext Inst and Audio Tracks to send midi and receive audio tracks in my DAW? It’s seems a little clunky.

Would Logic be more efficient? As I’m hoping to make more standard compositions > using loops/clips.

Thank you
