All inputs can be routed and mixed to any (combination of) outputs.
This is a classic anti-Pro Tools retort: Trot out a bunch of features and channel counts that are irrelevant to the real-world task at hand.

I'm talking about getting comfortably into the 40s in track count without worry about any part of the system, and what I need is a flexible tape machine. I don't need the mixer features. I like RME, but if I really need the feature set you're talking about at some point, I'm not going to be looking at something a lot more robust and not worrying about saving a few dollars.
