Virus plug in won't recognize desktop unit

  • Mac, High Sierra 10.13, Ableton (to start with...PT and Logic to follow), USB for now. Considering breaking out the old MTP AV and going MIDI because of wonky synth behavior.


    I have no desire to delve deeply into the whole total integration thing. I simply want to use it as an external synth and have the editing/automation capabilities of the plug in. Can I still do that if it's only connected via MIDI?

    I don’t think so. The VC plugin seems to connect directly to the hardware using a proprietary protocol.
