polyout

Transmit MIDI poly pressure messages

Description

polyin transmits its input as a MIDI polyphonic key pressure message to a MIDI device.

Arguments

Name Type Opt Description
MIDI-port (a through z) symbol opt Specifies the port for transmitting MIDI polyphonic key pressure messages. Channel numbers greater than 16 received in the right inlet will be wrapped around to stay within the 1-16 range. If there is no argument, polyout initially transmits out port a, on MIDI channel 1.
MIDI-port (a through z) and channel-number (int) list A letter and number combination (separated by a space) indicates a port and a specific MIDI channel on which to transmit polyphonic key pressure messages. Channel numbers greater than 16 will be wrapped around to stay within the 1-16 range.
(MIDI name) symbol opt The name of a MIDI output device may be used as the first argument to specify the port.
channel-number int A number alone can be used in place of a letter and number combination. The exact meaning of the channel number argument depends on the channel offset specified for each port in the MIDI Setup dialog.

Messages

int pressure-value [int]
In left inlet: The number is the pressure value of a MIDI polyphonic key pressure message transmitted on the specified channel and port. Numbers are limited between 0 and 127.
  (inlet1) key-number [int]
In middle inlet: The number is stored as the key number, to be used with pressure values received in the left inlet. Numbers are limited between 0 and 127.
  (inlet2) channel-number [int]
In right inlet: The number is stored as the channel number on which to transmit the polyphonic key pressure messages.
float MIDI-polypressure-message [float]
Converted to int.
anything MIDI-input-port (a through z) [list]
Performs the same function as port but without need for the word, "port".
(mouse) Double-clicking on a polyout object shows a pop-up menu for choosing a MIDI port or device.
port MIDI-port [symbol]
In left inlet: The word port, followed by a letter a-z or the name of a MIDI output port or device, specifies the port used to transmit the polyphonic key pressure messages. The word port is optional and may be omitted.
list input [list]
In left inlet: The first number is the pressure value, the second number is the key number, and the third number is the channel, of a transmitted MIDI polyphonic key pressure message.

Information for box attributes common to all objects

Output

(MIDI): There are no outlets. The output is a MIDI polyphonic key pressure message transmitted directly to the object's MIDI output port.

Examples

Letter argument transmits to only one port... Otherwise number specifies both port and channel
