Bypassing VST Plugins with Midi Controller

Hello. Got a Logidy UMI3 here which is capable of sending CC messages. If I want to program Cantabile such that pressing one of UMI3’s bypasses a certain plugin in a rack, and vice versa, how would I go about doing that?

Cheers guys.

That’s what bindings are for: have a look at @brad’s video on this.

Essentially, you need to create a binding that looks like this:

When your UMI3 sends a controller (here CC21), the bypass property of the plugin (here an Equalizer) is toggled (on → off, off → on)

You can also set two buttons to control the effect like this:

now the first button bypasses the effect, the second activates it again
