Understanding [midiout]


    Aug 12 2019 | 4:56 pm
    Hi, I try to understand the object midiout. I see that one possible message is 144,60,60 where I know the last 60 value means start note whilst if I send 0 then it is stop note. But what about 144? I have tried to look in the documentation but this is not very well described (unless I am missing something essential..)

      You can find the answer in the web, searching for "midi 1.0 specification". I had a similar question here: https://cycling74.com/forums/data-reference-for-seq-output

      144 (x00 x90) is "channel 1"

      Here a scteenshot from max 4 documentation. In old days one got pdf file to read.
      Midiout needs no hex, just use integers. And midiout does iter the list, so there is no need to separate message bytes with comma. You can rather use it to send a chord , for example 144 48 120, 144 52 100, 144 55 80
