Trigger vocoder with sonar midi?

Hi there... I'm going crazy trying to get Sonar to send midi notes to a vocoder.
I am trying UAD Softube vocoder and I also have Waves morphoder.
 
Method:
- open CW plugin manager
- find vocoder, go to options and configure it as a synth
- save to plugin list
- have audio track in sonar with vocal clip on it, insert vocoder as a synth into that audio track's bin
- create midi track, select the vocoder as the output. Input set to midi omni
- i see midi activity on the midi track but midi not going to either vocoder plug in
 
What am I doing wrong? I've tried with both vocoders.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks
Jono

    Starting with X3 there is no need to configure an effect as a synth. The setup is the same for any effect plug-in that reads MIDI data. The steps are:
    1) add the plug-in to the FX rack of the track/bus to be affected
    2) Use the VST2/3 drop down above the plug-in UI to "Enable MIDI Input"
    3) Add a MIDI track with input set to the controller, output set to the plug-in, enable input echo
     
    Currently there are a couple of threads on the first page of this forum covering the same information.
     
    There is very little traffic here because the forum will soon be set to read only. The current active forum for Cakewalk by BandLab is http://discuss.cakewalk.com
