All,

I had to do a spam cleanup. If you tried to register and or had a topic posted that has disappeared, please repost and/or contact support by email. I want to encourage communication on relevant topics but fighting spam is difficult without bulk operations that may impact others.

Re: Changing presets on VKFX fx plugin

Hi Maze,

This is actually by design. MIDI routing just gets too complicated if you have to enable/disable PC filtering to every single insert plugin. Since PC is primarily used as a synth patch change, Forte forwards them to VSTi instruments but doesn't do this with inserts.
