Hello Pders,<br><br>This is my first post to the pd-list. <br><br>I recently bought a Faderfox midi controller and was planning to use it with Pd (Win XP) but I'm running into problems. When I move a knob on the midi controller there is a delay of at least one second until the controller data show up in the Pd window (I simply output controllers using the [ctlin] object). This delay makes it pretty much unusable. I tried different command line arguments to find something that could speed things up and I managed to get quick midi input through the [ctlin] object, if I used -noaudio. But I'd like to use the audio system, so that's not really an option for me. Is MIDI on Win XP Pd really this bad? There is a warning message showing up in the Pd window when using MIDI on windows.
<br><br>A solution would be to convert the MIDI to OSC in some other program and send it to Pd, but of course I prefer to just use the [ctlin] object in Pd, if possible. I also run Pd on Linux but unfortunately my soundcard (M-Audio Firewire 410) has no driver for Linux.
