[PD] Problem with Ground Control Pro and [midi-in] response to Derek

Thanks for the response, I have the audio midi setup window open and
the USB Uno MIDI interface is viewable.  I then started PD, selected
the Uno from the midi preferences in PD and ran the test patch(i have
also tried this by starting pd then starting the utility).  I receive
no messages in the midi message boxes of the test patch.  When I test
the setup from Audio/midi setup(not PD) I still get the nice test
tones when I pressed the foot pedals buttons.

The foot peda is directly connected to the Uno which is plugged into
the a USB port of my Powerbook g4.

In the Audiomidi devices setup window am I supposed to add a device
and run a virtual patch inside that window to the interface?  The
thing is that when I plug my midi keyboard into the Uno I get messages
fine straight to PD, if I switch the keyboard out and connect the
pedal nothing happens....except in the osx setup utility.

I have also tried starting the IAC driver but that doesnt show up in PD....

Did you leave the "Audio MIDI Setup" application open when running PD?
This is usually necessary in my experience. Did your specific interface
appear on the list of available MIDI devices in PD?
