Multiple tracks using the same instrument (VST)

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
Hello,

is it possible for multiple tracks to use only one instance of an instrument plug-in? The reason why I want this is following. Most VST plug-ins offer different instruments on different MIDI channels. But when I want to use the same VST plug-in in different tracks in LMMS (so that I can have different instruments), I need to load a new instance of the plug-in for each track. I think this is very time- and memory-consuming and it often leads to a crash. Thus, I'd like several tracks to share one instance of the plug-in. Is this possible?

Thanks.
Hi,

at the moment (on Windoze): in don't think so.
- no sends
- no routing
- no automation into the VST-Plugin
- no splitting on audio-or midichannels

It's not possible to loopback in LMMS.
But what works: Standalone (not VST) and a bridge like LoopBe Internal Midi.

Maybe something more possible on Linux and Jack? I don't have any practice about that.
