midi track send to the performer - how to ?

I can’t find a way to send a midi track to the performer. There are no send options to the performer in the send panel
Do I have to render it as an audiofile first ?

you can send MIDI Data by selecting VST Connect as output of the Cubase/Nuendo MIDI track. This will cause the Performers’ VST Instrument to play these in sync. No files are transfered.
If you send MIDI in Cubase/Nuendo to an Instrument or have MIDI on an Instrument track, you can send the audio of the output of the Instrument to the Performer using the sends (“To Performer”) just like with other audio tracks.

of course - I wasn’t thinking clearly!
Thank’s musi!
