I'm not intimate with the Nord Lead3's MIDI implementation.  But I'll
guess that a lot of MIDI software is handling all CCs indiscriminately
the same way, MSB or LSB.  (In particular, if you do not filter events
and play them back exactly as recorded, there's no need to ever care
about their semantics.)  If you do the same and it still sounds good,
you should be fine. :D
