Fast Workflow in FL Studio

Do you have suggestions for a fast workflow in FL Studio? I first open Scaler, go to the MIDI settings, assign Scaler to a port, then open a VST instrument and set it to take the information from that MIDI port.

I was hoping that if I load Scaler as an effect, I can skip this step. But unfortunately it doesn’t work, I get no sound from the VST when I load Scaler as an effect.
