Ui24R multitrack recording -- how to record EQ / FX ?

I see the same behavior as posted by Highway79 ( Ui16 ) on my Ui24R: Multitrack recording just takes the unprocessed input signal ( no EQ, no FX ).
Is there a way to change this, e.g. switch multitrack channel recording to post EQ ?
Alternatively, as a workaround:
Is there a way to patch e.g. an AUX or FX channel to one of the multitrack slots ?

Thanks in advance for any help !

    You would need to backfeed your multitrack recording into the UI-24 from the USB-A Playback port on the front panel. From there, you could route up to 8 channels at a time through each Aux-out bus and come out through the Aux XLR sockets. You'd want to make sure you route your FX to all aux outs as well, so that it gets picked up on the way out. You would then need to record the aux sends from the XLR sockets into your DAW.

    Honestly, it might be easier to just master your EQ/FX onto the raw tracks through your DAW plugins. That's what I do.

    Thank you for your response, sounds interesting...

    I found meanwhile a different workaround which covers my needs:
    Routed the sum of 3 FX channels ( with the reverb signal of 3 vocal mics ) to unused channel 20 ( finally found the way how to do so, RTFM... ) and included this channel into the multitrack recording; when processing the recorded tracks afterwards, I can add some reverb from channel 20 as required. Not exactly what I wanted, but good enough...

    Yes, processing the tracks afterwards in the DAW is actually the way to do it, however I just use Audacity for the processing, and the built in reverb is really not the best one on this planet ;-)

    Thanks again
