You will need a plugin that allows real VST MIDI out, by default this option is always shown, for any VSTi, but that does not mean that it works. I used for this test MIDIChFilter from CodeFN42 In your track to be converted (source), plug in MIDIChFilter, in the plugin menu enable VST MIDI out (top, provided by our DAW) Create a target track, MIDI, enable VST MIDI out - Recording. In the header of the mixer, or in the track header MI
