Yamaha N-12? Questions

I've read until page 6 of the "n-12 users" thread and the N-12 looks really nice for a Studio center piece. I'm currently Mixer-less and controller-less but have great monitoring and good front end. It Gets a little boring what all I see in front of me is 76 white keys. I'd like a controller or a hybrid mixer for my centerpiece.
I'm new to both so I don't know what I'd work better with I'm a sonar user, I need truly professional results.

1. N-12 is a digital mixer. so even If I mixed on this mixer (which has no recall....for ANY parameters, correct?) the summing would still be a digital algorithm? what would be this benefit?

2. Can I use a channel insert to patch in hardware during Mix down? (Daw-mixer-Outboard-mix down) I don't mean a work around, I want to use the insert in real time on tracks sent from my iOnyx and R-16)
Glad that I can bypass the preamps, But If I wanted to use my own Cirrus logic converters for recording but still the monitoring capabilities of the N-12,
What would I do? I could use a cable split from my preamps, but is there a more intelligent way of:
running into the insert return from my preamp-have the signal enter the N-12 channel strip-and have the signal come out someplace with out any ADDA happening? maybe you have an Idea for a work around... I'd like to be able to do something like this.

Thanks In advance, Steve

Anyone? I posted in the Official thread but I guess it's dead.

I really need to know If the channel insert is available to tracks coming over firewire into the channel strip....anyone?
