MidiDjConsole.Connect method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Establishes a connection between the instance of the component and the given MIDI input and output devices of a DJ Console. After the connection is established, the connection can be terminated through the MidiDjConsole.Disconnect method.

 

In order to establish the connection, both involved input and output devices of the DJ Console must have been previously opened through the MidiDevices.Open method.

 

When a connection is established, the DJ Console can report back to the instance of the component all of the events occurring on the console's physical controls and receive commands from the container application, for example switching a led on/off, blinking a led or display a string of characters on an eventual display.

 

For further details about interfacing with MIDI DJ Consoles see the MidiDjConsole object section and the How to manage MIDI DJ consoles tutorial.
