I have been wondering why is PD's MIDI output so jittery and why it has so many problems with note-offs not working properly (hanging notes every few dozens of notes, with fast sequences even more often).
I have recently tested a simple MIDI out patch in Max 7 and its MIDI output is rock solid no matter what. No hanging notes, no noticeable jitter. It is the major thing that is making me considering purchasing Max 7 but I have also found out, during the testing, that it really crashes a lot while doing basic things so I would stay with PD if the mentioned MIDI output problems are fixable.
Can there be anything done in/with PD that would make MIDI out solid as in Max 7?
I really really want to love PD but this is a major bummer. I really need to output MIDI to a DAW.
