Hi IOhannes,

I am using Windows NT with a Steinberg USB MIDI interface. The drivers were 
installed properly as far as I know.

   The USB MIDI interface was picked up by the OS yesterday when I checked 
in the Control Panel.

   Using "pd -listdev" the MIDIinOpen still tells me that there is no driver 
installed in the system.
