UR Connection question

So I’m using an EMU-1212m PCIe audio interface. These seem to have fallen out of favor. I assume because of the PatchMix software.

Anyway, I’m looking into a new interface. My question is the ad videos claim that Cubase automatically recognizes the interface. What exactly does that mean? I guess what I’m asking is what sort of seamlessness do you get out of the UR interface using Cubase that you don’t get from another USB audio interface?
