Select the listening port. Must be used the --outputdevice option.
-o OUTPUT_DEVICE, --output-device=OUTPUT_DEVICE
Select a midi output device. (sink) Must be used with
the --receiving-port option.
-i INPUT_DEVICE, --input-device=INPUT_DEVICE
Select a midi input device. (source) Must be used with
the --sending-port option.
-L LATENCY, --latency=LATENCY
Specify the latency (in ms) of the midi out device
(default is 20)
-b JITTER_BUFFER, --jitter-buffer=JITTER_BUFFER
Specify the jitter buffer size in ms (default is 10)
Take care of note ON/OFF alternating, useful if
several notes in a ms (experimental)
DISABLE recovery journal (journal provide note
recovery when a packet is lost, so at your own risks!)
Take care of MIDI standard (ex: omni on) in recovery
Enables a verbose output
Example: midistream -a 10.0.1.29 -r 44000 -s 44000 -i 1 -o 0 This command
creates a bi-directional connection with 10.0.1.29 on port 44000, midi device
1 is the source for sending data, and all received data are sent to midi
device 0. Caution: If the stream is bi-directionnal receiving port and sending
port must be equal.
Let say we want to stream MIDI data from host 10.10.10.80 to host 10.10.10.65. We first need to plug our input MIDI device on the first computer, and to choose an output MIDI device on the second computer. We can list the MIDI devices on each computer using the following command:
This way, you know the number of the MIDI device to use on each host. The next step is to know the IP address of each host. The ifconfig command can help you with that. Finally, start the sender on the first computer, and the receiver on the second.
