With vst this is often a frustrating issue for plugin developers.
It may seem obvious that a soft-synth should be able
to accept audio input, and that an fx should be able to 
respond to Midi notes.
However for some strange reason a lot of vst hosts treat
vst-fx and vsti as completely different categories and don't 
support that...I've even witnessed a host developer
explaining it's unnecessary!

Possibly there's a fix in newer editions of hosts that allows
you to load a vst-fx into vsti slots and vice versa, so
anyone with persisting problems might look into an upgrade
as a possible solution.
