N5 direct monitoring behavior

Anyone know how to bring back older (Nuendo 3) direct monitoring behavior? I’m recording thru analog console and was used to older way of monitoring, i.e. sound recorded thru input 8 will be on output eight regardless of Nuendo channel’s output settings. Very handy to have one analog mixer channel for input source (mic etc.), one for monitoring when recording and one for listening. Now with N5 direct monitoring follows Nuendo ch output settings which I don’t like…
