Sending OSC is not rt-safe and VST parameters are rather limited.
"arbitrary messages" are no fun and need all kinds of hacks (eg sending
them from the UI thread). There are a couple of single-parameter VSTs

Along those lines there's an ancient LADSPA plugin, too:
needs some CFLAGS=-fPIC but otherwise still compiles, but it probably
won't run in SomeEvilDAW.

A more generic solution: https://github.com/x42/jackmidi2osc
Receive MIDI from someplace, generate fancy OSC based on rules.

Spencer wrote a similar tool https://github.com/ssj71/OSC2MIDI/ which
despite its name can also turn MIDI into OSC.
