Extend to VSTs and VST presets to be shown by instrument group as is already possible for Notion ones
(by strings, woodwinds, brass etc.).

Useful when dealing with very large orchestral mixes relying on large amounts (or almost entirely)
of third-party samples.

How would you map VSTs to instrument groups? Using eg either single VSL instru,ents (not part of the orchestra bundle) or Kontakt  as VST tells you nothing of the instrument they play.

@martinkutschker re: "How would you map VSTs to instrument groups?"

Good point.

It could be done via dialog box, when you add a staff you will be asked the group you want it relies in.
In short, you label the staff, not the VST plug-in.

Yes, adding the instrument group configuration to the staff settings makes sense.
