    ez peeps, just wondered if there is a way to assign a VST effect to a midi track. For years ive always made my basses on a midi track and then exported to audio and added effects to the audio. bit of a pain in the ass so if anyone can help would be very time saving and much appreciated.
    Cheers in advance peeps

    do you by any chance mean to add effects on the synth channel ? you can do that just like with all the audio tracks.
    if you mean MIDI effects, you must be aware that these consist of rhythm gates, chord generators, tremolo/vibrato etc. no audio effects can go on a midi channel.

    all the effects i would normally add to the bass. ie distortion, reverb, unison, maximiser, compressor/limiter etc. can i add it to the vst synth channel rather than the midi channel? or is this a lost cause alltogether?

    Not at all mate, you add the effects the same way you would for audio...

    Just click the midi track and all it properties will come up down the left hand side. You know where the little icon like a piano is? The one that you click to show the midi instrument? Next to that is en "e" icon, click that and you can add the effects there, it has all the inserts and sends.
