collision or interference using midiout and noteout?

July 31, 2011 | 11:37 pm

I want to send note information to noteout and control information to midiout using the same channel. Is there any chance of data colliding? By colliding I mean a note-on message being interrupted by a controllor message (or vice versa).

Asking the same question another way: Does noteout and/or midiout arbitrate access to the midi driver?

I have never noticed a problem, and I’m a very heavy user of ctlout and noteout. I believe that these objects add messages to a queue that gets sent out.
