MIDI.MarkersEnableNotifications method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Enables/disables the synchronization of the container application with a specific type of MIDI marker detected inside the loaded MIDI stream during playback.

When synchronization is enabled, the component fires the MidiMarkerNotification event for each specific marker enabled for notification.

 

Markers can also be enumerated offline, while the MIDI stream is not in playback, through the combination of the MIDI.MarkersEnum and of the MIDI:MarkersEnumItemGet methods.

 

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