I made a quick video :


First download MIDItoReaControlPath :
Extract and put the dll in your VST folder.

1) Create a track with (in this order) :
Vectorpad --> MIDItoReaControlPath --> your VSTI

You can leave the default settings for MIDItoReaControlPath or select Control Change for his second slider.
If your VSTI is already linked to vectorpad via CC learn, skip to 3) :

2) In your synth, tweak a knob you wish to link to X, select param -> learn.
In the learn window, the CC for Y (not X) will appear (Y-CC are sent all the time from vectorpad, a bug to be corrected).
Just change the Y-CC in vectorpad to the desired number for X (CC-20 by default) and close the learn window.
Repeat with another knob for Y : tweak knob, select param learn, change Y-CC back to its default value 21 (or any other), close learn window.

3) Record :
* record-arm your track + select midi input + monitor.
* right-click the envelope button of your track, select "write" mode.
* Hit record on the transport and play your keyboard and/or vectorpad.

The parameter envelopes of your VSTI should be recorded (as well as envelopes for vectorpad X-Y that you can bypass or delete), if not you may have to record-arm them before you play (like in the video).
