Standalone MIDI controller software?

I'm looking for a standalone MIDI controller software that can easily control standalone plugins/ instruments which are running on the desktop without using a whole sequencer (like Cubase, Reason) for controlling plugins in the software.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking for, but if you're on a Mac, MainStage ($30 from the App Store) might be it: it's a performance-oriented plugin host. You get all the Logic plugins as part of the deal.

For instance; instead of installing a real MIDI keyboard via a USB port and play everything through it on the desktop (like NI Massive, FM8).. I'm looking for a way to play standalone instruments by an internal MIDI controller software while the keyboard and the required instruments open at the same time and every instruments I open is connected to that MIDI virtual keyboard..

The explanation seems bit clumsy but the function I look for is as simple as a virtual MIDI keyboard controller. that's it.

VMPK is a virtual MIDI piano keyboard for Linux, Windows and OSX. Based on Qt4 and RtMIDI, the program is a MIDI event generator using the computer's alphanumeric keyboard and the mouse. It may be used also to display received MIDI notes.

I still can't see the MIDI controller on the instruments' midi input..

Look at the picture I put..

I want the massive to get a midi Input from the virtual piano

Is there any option I should set on the virtual piano?
