i think the problem in the email you are referring to is a
hardware/confgiuration problem. i use a Hammerfall under Win2000Pro, with very
large buffer settings even, and notice no appreciable lag or latency in my MIDI
controller messages [from Doepfer pocket controller]. but that is a
Hammerfall... maybe some other MIDI in/out device would do it different. 

one thing we don't know wanything about is the machine in question. RME has an
advisory about USB MIDI in the technical section of their site, warning away
from it in certain motherboard/chipset combinations. so, more info is needed to
settle that particular problem.

in general, PD MIDI shouldn't be any problem at all, as long as your hardware is
sorted out proper.
