[PD] Problem with Commercial OSS and PD

I'm using OSS/Commercial and I too only have MIDI In and no MIDI out. 
This is because OSS does not support MIDI out because most card do not 
have hardware MIDI out. If MIDI out works with your card with other 
programs thats because the MIDI translation is done in software, not 
by the card. This is what I got from OSS/Commercial documentation.

no sure about a fix, I only use MIDI in.
