what kind of noise is it exactly? some (or lots) of extra clicks, but the  
sound is there? if so, it should be the buffer setting, as someone already  
said. you set that up in the card software / properties, outside of pd.

try setting the buffer + latency (in pd) at high values, and then going  
down until it still sounds good. do it separately, maybe. or together.

I don't know what that message means, it was there all the time and I  
never had problems with midi. maybe it's there to make fun of people who  
use windows instead of unix.
