hmm let's guess
* you have both reViSiT and some VSTi in the VST list
* you create a new midi channel in the tracks-panel of a new cubase project (that thing on the left)
* the IN of that midi channel comes from 'reViSiT', the OUT goes to the VSTi (Halion, VSampler3, Sampletank etc.)
* the CHN of that miditrack is set to: 'ANY'
Afaik this should work.
btw, atm iirc multiple instances of revisit don't work. They might work visually, but iirc not audiowise.

yes... this is exaxtcly the setting, but it doestn work.
I wonder... how cubase rocognize the midi channel of note that revisit sent to it????
Were in revisit is defined "this note is MIDI CH nr. xx"

It's important to recognise that reViSiT's channels (01:Channel 1, 02:Channel 2, etc.) are not MIDI channels, just "tracker" channels. To control different MIDI channels/instruments (and thus different VSTi plug-ins), you must set up different reViSiT Instruments, each with their own MIDI channel.
So you could have Instrument 01 using MIDI channel 1, Instrument 02 using MIDI channel 2, etc. Then, if you want the tracker channels, 01:Channel and 02:Channel 2 to match MIDI Channel 1 and 2 respectively, you have to make sure you're using the right reViSiT instrument in the right reViSiT tracker channel. I.E. You have to use Instrument 1 in tracker channel 01:Channel 1 and Instrument 2 in tracker channel 02:Channel 02.
Of course, you don't have to. You could use both Instruments 1 and 2 in tracker channels 01:Channel 1 and reViSiT will still route to MIDI Channel 1 and 2, because it is the instrument that determines the MIDI channel.
So, you could set up Instruments 1-16 to use MIDI Channel 1-16 respectively. This way you can change the MIDI channel from note to note by editing the Instrument entry of the note row. For example, enter C-5 01 -- .00 anywhere in the pattern and MIDI Channel 1 will be used; similarly, C-5 02 -- .00 will use MIDI channel 2.
I hope I understood you correctly - let me know if I didn't.
All the best,
