You can't use Bridge for MIDI yet, except by automating the CC parameters. It is currently only an Effect plugin. The instrument version is coming later.
Use is simple: Add an Audio track in your DAW. Put VCV Bridge on the audio track.
Add a MIDI-CC and an Audio device to Rack. Set them both to Bridge, and set the port to match the port you chose in VCV Bridge in your DAW (defaults to 1).
Audio from Rack will return through the VCV Bridge effect. MIDI is only for sending CV generated from automating the 16 CC parameters in Bridge.
You will need to use some other method of getting MIDI into Rack. On Mac, you can do this using the IAC Driver for inter-app MIDI. There are 3rd-party drivers that accomplish the same thing in Windows. In any case, create a MIDI track in your DAW and set its MIDI-send to the inter-app device you have. Choose the same inter-app device in Rack on a MIDI module.
This will all be a lot easier once the Instrument version of Rack is released. Then you will only need a single MIDI track in your DAW to drive it.
