MIDI.InputDevicesStartOnPlayer method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

After having enumerated, through a call to the MIDI.InputDevicesEnum method, the list of available MIDI input devices installed inside the system, starts a MIDI input device and send incoming MIDI events directly to the MIDI stream loaded inside a player instanced by the component.

If incoming MIDI events should be managed without the need of immediate playback it would be recommended using the MIDI.InputDevicesStart method.

 

For further details about the use of MIDI protocol see the MIDIMan class section and the How to deal with MIDI protocol tutorial.
