I have some widgets which include footer, header, top bar, right and left sidebar but what about a middle widget??

I am trying to input a metaslider into the middle of my page but no suitable widget.
Can anyone advise please?

Best is to use a theme that uses and allows the middle widget.
I,use it on one of my sites..

I never seen a middle widget, however you can use MetaSlider plugin.

If you need to insert snippets into the middle of your content, you usually use Shortcodes. You might want to consider using the Content Aware Sidebars, as one of the options is to place them with Shortcodes, while still functioning as if it was a sidebar/footer etc.

Following on from your PM, so that everyone can see the answer

If this is the Meta Slider you are referring to

https://wordpress.org/plugins/ml-slider/

Then no, you don't need any additional plugins etc, as it comes with Shortcodes etc (snippet from their plugin page below).

"Built in Gutenberg block, Widget and Shortcode"

I.e. if you are using the Block Editor, you can just add the block. If you are using the Classic Editor, you can add the shortcode
