MIDI Out



  • OK so general question - as I havent used the "make a MIDI plugin" features yet.

    So I have a requirement to build a stand alone app that will control external devices thru a std USB MIDI port, so these days (I think) HISE can create MIDI sending plug-ins but can it also send its MIDI data to some external port? I know the stand alone can identify the inbound midi ports available - looking for outbound too I think.

    It has to be a stand alone app - no DAW allowed



  • so these days (I think) HISE can create MIDI sending plug-ins

    WRONG 🙂

    But I remember I promised to add this at some point, so thanks for the reminder.

    Oh I have a great idea for a plugin with this feature 🙂



  • @Christoph-Hart can you add it to the stand-alone implementation too then please....."pretty please with sugar on top"?



  • The amount of sugar needed to make me write a virtual MIDI output will not be healthy 🙂

    The problem is that it's trivial on macOS but impossible without actually writing a virtual device driver on Windows which hooks up to the software.

    A more likely solution would be to connect to a MIDI input of a running software (or external MIDI loopback driver) which you want to send the messages too.



  • @Christoph-Hart er -- yes I think, so (on windows) I'd start LoopBe1 (say) having declared some virtual midi port - and then start my HISE derived app and it would connect to this ? So in effect sending MIDI out the machine wiht out having to load some vst into some DAW yes?
