thanks for your reply. I think that also using your abstraction Pd will
spit out 1 byte per time (I didn't check it, but I assume that cause
it's not an external in C).
about MIDI if I'm not wrong, bytes are grouped in accord with the type
of message, ie Note on/off and CC are 3 bytes messages, channel pressure
and program change are 2 bytes, sysex have variable length and so on.
and I presume they're sent out in group.
in fact when I monitor MIDI messages coming for certain applications
(I'm on Linux and I'm using Gmidimonitor) the console tells me the sysex
size in bytes. so, with Pd the size is always 1 byte, but with other
programming languages and softwares is variable and goes in accord with
the sysex I generated.
