Buffer Length on Midi Input nodes

with "buffer length" you set the maximum number of incoming midi-messages that get queued for output in the patch. only one message per vvvv-frame will be output in the patch while within a frames timespan more than one message could arrive.

therefore:

  • if you want to make sure that you receive every single midi-message arriving on your midi-interface:

+set it to a high value (ie. 999)
+you will notice the patch still receiving messages after your stopped chaning values on your midi-device.

  • if you want fast responses in the patch and don't care about receiving all of the messages (e.g.: messing around with a faderbox which causes lots of dynamic ControlChange data) :

+set it to a lower value; even 0 can make sense here.

a value of 10 is chosen as default for most situations where you don't have to many midi-messages floating around but still want to make sure to receive all of them.
this valuable information is almost quoted from this thread.

Useful MIDI-Modules from other users

can e.g. be found at:
bilderbuchi modules
kalle.Modules.MIDI
tonfilm-Modules
Zepi

for sure this list is not complete at all. you may want to search the vvvviki for 'MIDI' and 'Modules' yourself.
