Is your MIDI controller REALLY sending messages with higher precision 
than 0-127? The only way I thought that was possible with the hardware 
MIDI spec was by using the pitchbend controller, which uses two channels 
for double-precision AFAIK. So, you could try to use bendin and send the 
information as a pitchbend message which has higher resolution than a 
continuous controller. Or you could split the data onto different CC 
channels and sum them together. Or you could find someone to modify the 
ctlin object to make it do what you want.
