Using Sends to add FX while direct monitoring

Enjoying the UR824. I am using it with Cubase 7. I’m posting this in case I am missing something here… Is it possible to add a send FX to a directly monitored track on the UR824? For instance lets say I want to add a delay or chorus to the vocals on certain inputs. I have not found a way to get it to go to the sends when using the ‘direct monitoring’ function. I did talk to a steinberg tech help on the phone, and they put in a feature request for this in the programming.

Anyone else think this is a good idea? We do live sets and it is extremely needful to add additional fx when needed or even to send the track to a VST looper.
