Default Printing a MIDI track to an Audio Track

Currently I am working on a session in PT 12.8 and I have bounced MIDI data from the software that comes with the Akai MPC Studio. Often times when using the MPC software as a plug-in within PT to export audio, VST plugins I am using in MPC don't print properly. So my solution was to export my MIDI data from MPC and import into Pro Tools, placing it on a MIDI track and routing that to an Aux Input with the Falcon (stereo) plugin. This produces sound in PT. What I have realized after doing this is that using an AudioSuite plugin will not affect my MIDI data in PT. So my solution was to print the MIDI data being routed through Falcon to a stereo Audio Track. I set the I/O of the Falcon Aux Input track to output Bus 3-4, and for my Audio Track to input from Bus 3-4. I get no signal on the meter on the Audio Tracl when attempting to record. I will post screenshots showing my routing in the Mix window as well as the Edit window view of my MIDI and Falcon tracks.

If I didn't articulate this properly here is what I did:
1. In the MPC software I recorded a melody on a plugin track routed to a VST.
2. I wasn't able to bounce this melody seamlessly into Pro Tools using MPC as a track insert in PT, so I bounced the track in MPC standalone as a MIDI file.
3. I imported this MIDI file onto a MIDI track in PT.
4. I routed my MIDI track to an Aux Input Track with the Falcon Instrument insert (stereo).
5. I was able to produce an audible signal by selecting a preset in the Falcon plugin insert.
6. AudioSuite processing is critical for what I am mixing in my session. MIDI tracks are not effected by AudioSuite.
7. I created a stereo Audio Track and routed the output of my Falcon Aux Input channel to its input. MIDI Track I/O: All, Falcon1-1 > Falcon Aux Track I/O: no input, Bus3-4 > Audio Track I/O: Bus3-4. Built-inOutput1-2

I appreciate any feedback that can be provided and any possible solutions for this workflow. Peace
