[PD] nanoKontrol2 dropping MIDI messages (OSX)

Hi Ángel -

I've seen a similar problem reported in Windows:


and tried to recreate it with no success.  I think the Max problem you
found is something different (because at least there the values settle
correctly when the sliders stop moving while for you it seems like something
is ending up in the wrong state).

Anyway, with apologies I have to say I'm delighted you can get this to
happen on a Mac - if indeed it's the same problem as on the PC it means
it's in teh Pd code and so if I can ever get it to happen here I can probably
fix it :)

To my surprise, after a few basic testings, i've discovered that when I move as little as three faders sending CC values simultaneously --and not incredibly fast--, pd doesn't receive a big part of the values (with [ctlin]), staying half the way in the midi-value range.

Even more weird (or maybe not!) is that when I move any of the faders again, the next value that is thrown out is 126 (as if the object had actually gotten the previous 127 and is going down from there!)---------
