RME Audio Fireface UC : No real MIDI control

My opinion does not affect the others: the Fireface UC is a great sound card.
BUT
It can not be controlled by a MIDI sequencer (DAW) via the same interface Totalmix.
Let me explain:
The easiest way to automate the mix in a sequencer way is to assign the MIDI in and out ports to the control surface on one side and the other DAW.
In a MIDI track DAW, it is possible to record and play back the movements of various buttons and faders on the control surface. Quite simply, without having to program anything. Thereby simply and accurately apply the changes effects, volume, pan, etc.. musical work.
Yamaha 01V96 does this work perfectly.

However, assigning the MIDI input / output of the Fireface in the DAW, and arming recording, Totalmix does not send MIDI messages: MIDI track remains empty, and the meter of incoming MIDI message remains empty.
I tried all sorts of configurations, with or without MIDI cables: impossible to pass MIDI messages between Totalmix and DAW.
RME has come to recognize this lack: Totalmix does not send MIDI data.
And they do not intend to implement this function.

Conclusion: RME cards whatsoever are not controllable by MIDI sequencer (DAW).
