there was once this idiocy of mine which hinted you could drive a midi
audio_fx plugin by inserting it into a midi track (eg. a midi controlled
vocoder plugin) and preceding it by an audio insert.
that way you could have the plugin control data in the midi track (ie.
poor man's automation:). what could never work was that the audio input
signal, which you feed to the aforementioned audio insert returns,
couldn't ever be taken from one of qtractor's audio output buses.
because it just doesn't work, you just get silence instead. but it could
work iif the audio signal is piped in from anything alse but qtractor...
