I'm trying to get my plugins to communicate with each other via MIDI.....specifically, Reaktor 5 and soft synths like Symptohm and Absynth.
I would like to send MIDI out of Reaktor and play notes on the other synths, but I can't seem to figure out how. I tried going OUT of the Receptor and back IN, but I just read that the OUT isn't even connected.
Also, do the plugins have to be loaded on the same channel?
I'm not sure what you are trying to do. If you are simply trying to get Symptohm and Absynth to respond to the same Midi notes coming into Reaktor, why not simply instantiate those VSTis on different Receptor Channels, and set the Midi Channels on those Receptor Channels to be the same Midi Channel that you have for Reaktor.
If you have Reaktor generating different Midi info (ie such as a step-sequencer generating Midi) - then that is something that Receptor doesn't support (Midi routing).
