Hey there, I’m pretty experienced with VCV but ran into sort of a strange problem today. I was testing out a new VST plugin for sequencing (Riffer 3) and you can map parameters in the VST to CC controls. The VST itself doesn’t actually have any MIDI routing settings (just pulls them from the DAW it’s working in) so I figured, oh no problem, just use the CC expander. Then I realized the CC expander for Host was output only.
Is there a way I can send CC to the host plugin through VCV? It’s not mappable on any of the input jacks on Host. The plugin can receive pitch data fine through CV/Gate inputs but I can’t map those to any parameter changes. All the other CC modules require you to pick a MIDI device, but since this is a VST running in Host it’s not something I can select as a MIDI device. I do have a dedicated Midi hub for hardware, but again since this plugin automatically pulls the device info from the DAW I’m not really sure how I could route a CC in even from an external source.
any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
