Oh, there are no controllers in the 31..63 range. These numbers are
reserved for the ``fine'' nibble of continuous controllers in the
0..31 range.

Controllers 0..31 have two nibbles and they are transmitted as two
MIDI controller messages: the coarse nibble (controller in the 0..31
range) and the fine nibble (controller in the 32..63 range). For
instance, controller number 4 is transmitted as two messages:
controller 4 followed by controller 36.

Midish uses both nibbles internally, except when .mid files are being
imported/exported, it ignores controllers 32..63

If you have a .mid file that triggers midish to generate controllers
with number 32, I'm very interested.

fixed, it's on cvs and in the new snapshot. Thanks!
