You might have a try with Pure Data, where - for example - scaling the 
range would be quite trivial (although of course you would still be 
losing in 'resolution'). Also you could use it for quickly prototyping 
midi message 'manipulator' patches, for example a while ago I hacked a 
patch to use a Vestax PAD-One controller (which sends note-on messages) 
to send bank and programme changes to yoshimi... and that was done quite 
easily in Pd ;)

My two cents.
