Hi Laura,

A workaround should be reinitializing the midi setup every minute or so.

Try the [get-midi-dialog] object (included in pd-extended0.42.5 from the hcs library), bang it to get the working midi settings into a message (see the help of [get-midi-dialog]). Then send this message back to pd every minute with a [metro 60000].
It should work ok.

Objet: [PD] MIDI input problems in PD

Dear list, 

I have problems with Midi input in PD. 
I use Windows 7 and make use of a Motu 828MKII soundcard. 
I receive MIDI via a polytouchin object (make use of FSRs and a coridium armmite to translate pressure on the FSRs to Midi messages). 
All goes fine in the beginning, but sometimes after a while (f.e. 2 hours) my Midi input starts to be random (FSRs trigger that are not supposed to be triggering). If I restart PD everything is back to normal. Any idea what the cause of this problem might be? 
It's an installation project so it is difficult to restart everything from time to time. 

Thanks in advance for your help!
