Why does Universal Control only allow for 8 DAW output paths?

Universal Control seems to only allow for 8 outputs from Studio one. In order to do analog summing or even match the capabilities of the interface, this is woefully inadequate. I have read while researching this topic that some users have a Digital Patching section in the settings of Universal Control. I do not seem to have this feature. Currently because of this, I can find no way to utilize ADAT outs 9-16 in any way, and can only get sound through the first 8 by telling studio one to send them out the line outs 1-8... How can UC be set up to match the output routing of Studio One?

I’m having the same issue!  My buddy has one of the c type black and blue Presonus interface (18i20) and he has daw outputs 9-16, but those don’t appear in my version of universal control I guess because I have  the older, yet more expensive Studio 192 26-channel..?

PESONUS, please answer this!   It does seem ridiculous that the interface has all these extra outputs that it can’t use fully.
