VST~ not accepting midi notes

I’m using VST`~ and loading a software synthesizer called “Aalto” http://madronalabs.com/products/aalto

When I send [midievent 144 72 127], a note on message for C4, to VST~ I receive this message in the Max window: “midievent: effect doesn’t want events”.

I’m assuming that VST~ thinks Aalto is an effect rather than a soft synth, which would explain why it’s not accepting midi notes.
Is there a work around for this, or am I just doing something completely wrong.

I have seen this happen if DSP is turned off

This can happen when the DSP is on too; a workaround is to initialise vst~ by making sure it loads a plug when it is instantiated, i.e. give it a plug name in it’s search path as an argument.
I used to use a dummy Pluggo plug for just this purpose,Cheers

for me this only happens with specific plug-ins, like the mda piano in OSX. (which is my dummy^^)
