How do I use a MIDI plugin with a VST? Is it possible?

Recommended Posts

I have Pianoteq - a VST, and I created a piano part in Piano Roll View. I bought a MIDI plugin called Humanize - to make MIDIs sound more human - not just random. The only plugins available from the VST FX menu are audio effects and not MIDI effects. Is there a workaround?

VST midi effects can be used in the manner of having VST instrument plugin like Humanize loaded on one track, and then take midi out from that as input to another like Pianoteq. So you run tracks in series you could say.

There are some setting to enable midi output on the instance of Humanize then so it become visible.

Split your simple instrument track to a midi and an audio track. Then you can insert the mfx on the midi track.

This works but is not necessary. The MIDI FX rack ("B" in the image below) is in the MIDI tab ("T") of the inspector for a simple instrument track.

I think you can also right-click on a SIT clip and get the Insert MIDI FX menu.
Discovered that from another thread about 'why a MIDI track gets bigger' or something like that from a few weeks ago.

Yes, in addition to track FX racks, all clips have their own FX Rack
