Er, to Ableton's internal functions...?

Sorry.  You're right.  If you're sending data directly to an AU/VST 
which responds to MIDI, then you don't have to go through this step.

More often, I'm trying to control things within Ableton itself 
(faders, send/return levels, etc.) and you do this loopback trick to 
route MIDI control directly to Live's parameters.

Unless you've come across another way around this I haven't figured out 

Thanks for the amendment.
