Pd version 0.43.4-extended
Mac OS X 10.7.2/Intel (also happens on Mac OSX 10.5.5/Intel)
Thanks for a brilliant piece of software, please can I raise an issue which is a problem especially gigging...
When using multiple midi devices, if there is any change to the midi devices available (e.g. I sometimes use a pedalboard depending on situation), this confuses which device is assigned to which input/output in PureData, even using completely different midi devices - I understand that PureData uses id numbers for each available device/port, which can change, rather than the names of the devices which do not.
Therefore, please can this be change to use midi device names, so the PureData input/outputs settings stay the same, even if a device is offline/unavailable? This would mean one can use multiple midi devices with confidence (and make use of more than 16 channels output!)
