UR-C input signal monitoring "while cubase" running question

i have the older UR44 HW and the main problem for me with it is that when cubase is runing i cant hear the input signal from it, only when creating a project and create audio channels and all routing to monitor the inputs ,and that’s the reason why i disabled (with a workaround) the UR extension from my computer and i use the DSP mixer even when cubase is running.
does the new UR-C can monitor now the inputs when cubase is running even when there is no project opened ?

no UR-C users/steinberg rep to have some info on this ? :mask:
thinking of replacing my old UR44 to UR44C ,and i need to know if it can monitor inputs like described above.
