Here's an idea:

So I love VEP and how it can offload your session. But it's always a bit of a problem with the separation of MIDI and Audio, that you get, and sometimes it can really break the workflow. 

An idea to solve this would be VEP would have the option to send back audio to a VST Instrument track, that would contain a specific Vienna plugin, for ease, let's call it: Vienna Ensemble Pro Event Channel, that would be light weight and function as VST Instrument in terms of Channel Strip, EQ etc.

We almost have this with the Vienna Ensemble Pro Event Input that on a VST track will send MIDI to VEP, so all we would need would be able to select the Instrument/Channel in VEP that is receiving the MIDI and then route its audio output back to the VST track with the Vienna Ensemble Pro Event Input plugin.

It might have to be a new type of output from VEP, to not collide with the way it's working now, as you could get multiple sources with the same sound from VEP.
Could also be that VEP simply wouldn't send out audio back to the VEP server plugin in the daw on those specific output channels that has been send back to our new type of plugin.
Could also be that in the VEP server plugin, you can route audio to the Vienna Ensemble Pro Event Channel. Wouldn't be as logical a way to set it up, and might also be more taxing on CPU. 

Hope you will consider the idea, for the futere.

Best, Jesper

The idea is not bad and I think VSL would had already implemented something like that if this could be done.
The main problem is latency compensation and how every DAW handles it differently.
I would not wait for an implementation, but change my template / workflow.

Thanks for chiming in Ben.

You might be right about that, since VSL is on the for front with great ideas. But I know it's also that missing link keeping some other people from using VEP. 
But it might be the whole latency thing that gets in the way since VSL didn't make it. Also if such a VST plugin would suddenly take 50mb pr instance, the point of VEP would kinda be gone, as we want to offload as much from the Master rig.

I've indeed some automation workflow things, that makes it less of an issue/annoyance with the separation of MIDI and Audio, and navigating between the two.
