Several VSTi's triggered by one channels notes

Hello peeps, so I want to use one channels key editor to trigger 5 VSTi’s so that I don’t need to have the keys on 5 separate channels. I know I can select all of them and open them in one window but this just seems way too frustrating for me. I thought this would be easy and maybe it is or maybe it’s impossible? Can anyone help?

Thanks a bunch!

Have you tried midi sends to rack instruments?

Good stuff, that did the trick. Any way of using more than 4 midi sends per channel?
Thanks a lot, I didn’t really know what I was looking for.
