Using VSTi in Radial ?

    Jun 15 2006 | 2:10 am
    Just starting with Radial... wow!
    Could someone give me a nudge as to how best use VST instruments?
    I see a field in the MIDI setup to pick a MIDI in trigger... but are they loaded as an effect? Or do they come in as some kind of input channel?
    Thanks in advance

      radiaL isn't really designed for use with VST instruments, only plugs which modify the sound of the loops. There is no MIDI playback in radiaL, for example.
      Probably the best way to achieve this would be to use radiaL as a rewire client into a host app which supports VST instruments.

      Oh Thanks again!
      I guess I went off on a tangent when I saw the "Virtual Instrument" setting in the MIDI Config... and the fact that VSTi's load happily in the effect slots.
      Thought maybe an incoming MIDI input could be routed to an instrument in a slot, then matrixed to an output.
      Maybe even use LFO's to generate MIDI notes to trigger and compose?
      Developer? Please?
      Well thanks for listening anyway.
