i know this topic has been discussed before, but i found an interesting fact that might solve the problem.
i'm using a vst plugin called Mobius (a real time looper based on Gibson's EDP - zonemobius.com) and i'm trying to control it in real time with my FCB1010 MIDI footcontroller.
when i'm sending ANY MIDI message (i.e PC, CC, note etc.) to the plugin i get the error: "Program (X) outside effect's range". :-(
i tried to send a "midievent" (with the same MIDI number the controller sends) to the plugin and it worked just fine (!!), so i thought that the problem is with my MIDI interface/controller, but when i tried to use the plugin in other apps (Live, EnergyXT, Bidule) it worked fine.
it seems that Max is not sending the MIDI message "as is" or it sends it too fast/slow....
