I have Reaktor 6 loaded as an instrument on one track, and Massive X loaded on a second track. I am trying to use the LFO-to-CC Reaktor ensemble to control Massive X's macro knobs. I tried this with a couple of other virtual instruments, and I was able to use each instrument's own MIDI Learn feature to pick up the CC data coming from Reaktor. It worked great! Unfortunately, Massive X doesn't have MIDI Learn; they expect the DAW to provide it. It's super easy in Studio One to route MIDI CCs from hardware controllers to Massive X, but I can't find a way to route MIDI CCs coming from a VSTi like Reaktor. Is this possible?

I found the answer: Use loopMIDI to make the MIDI CC data from Reaktor come back into Studio One as a virtual hardware controller. Many thanks to user marvingerdes for the solution! The whole procedure is here:
