Logic Pro 9 DAE and Audio Unit plugins (simple question) :)

We have currently a setup where we use the Digidesign CoreAudio driver, the problem is that it is only equipped with 8i/o with Protools HD. A solution to this problem would be using the DAE mode (to see all i/o's). The only question we have is, can Audio Unit plugins still be used in DAE mode, or not. We are not interested in using TDM plugins in Logic 9 or any TDM plugins.

(We are complete Protools noobs :D)
