Wonderful, thanks!

Now another question: After reading a bunch of documentation, it seems easier to simultaneously plug "notein", "ctlin" and "pgmin" into the "vst~" (as opposed to my initial idea of using a single "midiin"). I want to check that I understand formatting right. I realize there are numerous formatting choices for a given message, but I won’t use most of them; I just want to find out if the following will work:

(1) Will CC commands be successful if formatted as a 2-element list (x y), where x is an integer greater than 0, and y is a float between 0 and 1?

(2) Will note commands be successful if formatted as a 3-element list (s p v), where s is the string "midievent", and p and v (pitch and velocity) are both integers between 0 and 127?

(3) Will program-change commands be successful if formatted as an integer greater than 0?

Thanks,

Jeff
