I write drum tracks in Guitar Pro using standard General Midi note numbers (#35/#36 kick, #38/#40 snare, etc.), then use MIDI-Yoke (a virtual MIDI port) to redirect the notes to VSTHost (a tiny standalone VST host), where I can listen to the song before moving it to my DAW.

My problem is that the drum VST that I use has note mappings that differ from the standard GM mapping (say, my kickdrum is #40 and my snare is #55). I'm looking for a no-frills, intuitive MIDI VST that allows me to re-map the notes one by one, and save those maps.

While this doesn't directly answer your question (as it's not a VST), you can use the MIDI transformation features in MIDI-OX to change the mappings of notes. It is saveable and gets the job done, although I personally think it's a bit awkward to work with. –  Warrior Bob Jun 8 '11 at 21:28
    
+1 for MIDI-OX, but I quite like it.Most sequencers should be able to do this too. Logic Studio most certainly can. –  bot_bot Jul 3 '11 at 20:12
    
Can't you export the midi from guitar pro and import it on the DAW? –  Johnny Bigoode Dec 29 '11 at 17:51
    
@JohnnyBigoode I want to be able to do this in real-time. MIDI-OX is great, but too versatile for its own good - its difficulty of use really overwhelms its benefits. –  egasimus Jan 6 '12 at 8:46

Please add some more information about the VST here to make your answer more complete and also to make the information searchable on this site. –  Friend Of George Jan 28 '12 at 16:12
    
From the looks of it, this is exactly what I need. I'll look into it - thanks a ton! –  egasimus Jan 28 '12 at 19:41
