AUV3 on Input channel

Is it possible to load an auv3 to an input channel. For example TH-U on Mono 2, so I can record the audio with the effect straight to a new audio channel in my project.
If I load them to my effects it get’s glitchy sometimes and I’m working on a project with somebody, who doesn’t have the TH-U effect and I don’t want to freez channels all the time.

Any help would be much appreciated

As far as I remember there was a dedicated input channel in the mixer in Cubasis 2
