Imported VSTI

I downloaded some external free vsti plugins and put them in my plug in folder. Cubase 6 recognizes them without issue. However, when I use the Volume controller inside the midi piano editor, the vsti wont recognize this… a shame seeing that the instrument i downloaded is great, but if I can’t automate volume like that, that is not good :frowning:

or if I could just make the halion sonic se violen vibrato way slower that would be nice… can’t seem to find that option.
