Hey hey,
is there any way of finding out whether a big SysEx message is incoming, 
before the normal callback is invokved or I suppose one of the buffers is 
full? May it be viable reducing the buffersize (version 5.0.0) and increasing 
the number of buffers? The manual for this function mentions that this will 
not change anything on most APIs, since they handle buffers internally.

Many thanks for any pointers!

Best wishes,
