The ability to multitrack on a 16R is not likely. I believe there is a hardware limitation that prevents it. The Format tool may be possible, however.

Implementing multitrack recording would have meant to raise the prices for the rack mixers. The intention of PreSonus was to make the Series III rack mixers remarkably cheaper than the AI rack mixers. Therefore the answer to your feature request is No. The rack mixers 16R (single core), 24R and 32R (dual core) will never be able to record more than the Main stereo track, which already is quite a nice feature.

I believe you can already do it if you have a high-bandwidth enough SD card

The " UC_Surface_ReferenceManual_EN_04042019" says in section 10, StudioLive Series III Rack Mixer SD Recording: "StudioLive Series III rack mixers are equipped with an onboard stereo SD recorder that allows you to record any mix as a stereo WAV file to any FAT16- formatted SD card or FAT32-formatted SDHC card."

The 2-track SD recorder was used because of keeping costs as low as possible. It will never become a multitrack SD recorder...
