midi keyboard as user imput. how?

11 posts in this topic

hi, i would like to use a Midi keyboard just like any other user imput (mouse, keyboard). is it possible? i just need the imput midi data (in a variable, or whatever) to use it.

i've found and read the MidiUdf, and i want to thank for that, but it has midi managment functions and i cant figure out how to get the data.

thanks for help

P.S.: yes, im a little noobish ;)

no replies? not even a read-the-helpfile reply? :)

my question is simple. where do i get the midi imput data, if its possible?

thanks again, and... help me please ;)

I'm sure someone who knows about this will respond eventually. I see you have waited nearly 24 hours already. Perhaps the members who have used this UDF have not been on line lately. Give it a bit more time and if nothing happens then try contacting the author of the UDF.

There is a free "Midi Monitor" program that should be able to help determine what codes are being sent from your keyboard.

yes, i've tryed it, but i need the midi imput inside autoit, as an input (ex.: do something when C4 is pressed, or get change preset, and more), i need costant monitoring of the midi input witthin the scrip.

You might need to look into the windows API calls of "winmm.dll" to seek your answers mciGetDeviceID. After you place the multimedia control into your script, the first step is accessing the MCI device. To do this, you set a number of properties. On of these properties will no doubt be your DeviceType = "Sequencer".

At the moment I am getting ready for work, if I have any free time today, I will pop back in and add some code for you.

I have an electronic drumset that can plug into the pc via USB so I will be very interested in helping figure this one out.

I just don't know about dll's yet ;)

Good I'm glad someone has some midi equipment to test on. I don't have a thing here or at home.

These are some of the midi functions inside the winmm.dll;

midiConnect
midiDisconnect
midiInAddBuffer
midiInClose
midiInGetDevCapsA
midiInGetDevCapsW
midiInGetErrorTextA
midiInGetErrorTextW
midiInGetID
midiInGetNumDevs
midiInOpen
midiInPrepareHeader
midiInReset
midiInStart
midiInStop
midiInUnprepareHeader
midiOutCacheDrumPatches
midiOutCachePatches
midiOutClose
midiOutGetDevCapsA
midiOutGetDevCapsW
midiOutGetErrorTextA
midiOutGetErrorTextW
midiOutGetID
midiOutGetNumDevs
midiOutGetVolume
midiOutLongMsg
midiOutOpen
midiOutPrepareHeader
midiOutReset
midiOutSetVolume
midiOutShortMsg
midiOutUnprepareHeader
midiStreamClose
midiStreamOpen
midiStreamOut
midiStreamPause
midiStreamPosition
midiStreamProperty
midiStreamRestart
midiStreamStop

I dug up some code on midi input, but most of it is written in VB, C++, or some other languages. But thankfully DLLCALL structure doesn't vary much. So the first code I am looking at is;

$x = DllCall ("winmm.dll", "int", "midiInGetNumDevs")
If $x > -1 Then
    ConsoleWrite ("Number of devices detected = " & $x & @crlf)
Else
    ConsoleWrite ("No devices are detected.")
Exit
EndIf

For $i = 1 to $x
    $port = DllCall("winmm.dll", "UInt", "midiInGetDevCapsA" ,"UInt","A_Index"-1, "UInt","MidiInCaps", "UInt",50)
    ConsoleWrite ( $port & @crlf)
Next

Hopefully this code will return the number of midi devices on your system, then list the ports. It shouldn't hurt to try since we are just reading information. If you can ID your port then the next step is to open it for reading using midiInOpen function. Once successfully opened you should be able to read from the device using midiInAddBuffer depending on the data.

I just don't know about dll's yet

Dynamic Linked Libraries or DLL is just a collection of Windows functions we can access to send and receive data. Winmm.dll contains all the Multimedia function calls. I don't know much about midi or how the winmm.dll access works. A lot is based on researching the other languages such as C++ and VB to see how they access it then apply it here to AutoIt.

thank you very much. tomorrow i'll begin testing with all those stuffs. it will be my first time handling DLLs ;) , i hope i'll figure out. thanks again.

I did some digging around and found this script for both midi input and output posted on Autohotkey.com (another scripting tool) similar to, if not a branch of AutoIt.

REMINDER: This is not an AutoIt script but very close.

 I fear that adding so many different examples may make this more difficult to use. ....
I may have to pull different parts, MidiRules into an include file the same goes for the hotkeys midi generation...
Ah well...

 Generic Midi Program
  Basic structural framework for a midi program in ahk.
  The description what this is for is contained in the first post on the topic Midi Input/Output Combined at the ahk forum.
  Please read it, if you want to know more.
  I have added a few more examples for different midi data types as well as more, meaningful (I hope), documentation to the script.
  You are strongly encouraged to visit http://www.midi.org/techspecs/midimessages.php (decimal values), to learn more
  about midi data.  It will help you create your own midi rules.
  I have combined much of the work of others here.
  It is a working script, most of the heavy lifing has been done for you.
  You will need to create your own midi rules.
  By creating or modifying if statements in the section of the MidiRules label.
  I don't claim to be an expert on this, just a guy who pulled disparate things together.
  I really need help from someone to add sysex functionality.
 
******  Sections with  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - don't edit between these, unless you know what you are doing (uykwyad) !
 
******  Sections with ++++++++++++++++++++++ Edit between these marks. You won't break it, I don't think???

  v. 0.4
    + added an example of hotkey generating midi (volume controller)
    + added a second example for you create your own hotkey generated midi message.
   
   
  v. 0.3 changes
  + Adding text for how to add new rules.
  + Midi Rules, name used instead of filters, seems more appropriate.
  + Moved all rules outside the detector function, hoping to make it easier to understand and use.
  + abandoned the idea of dynamic code and a gui to create rules, omg, someone else do that, please!
  + Adding more examples for rules.
  + more to come, maybe...
  + removed that notemsg var - did not need it, not sure why i used it... nevermind
 
 
   TODO -
  + add a way to echo all midi input that is not filtered or modified to the output. Like a gui switch (sometimes you want it all sometimes you don't)
  + make the midi monitor easier to use and read, also a toggle for it to be on or off.
      - midi monitor columnar with data columns to show statusbyte, byte1 and byte2 as well as midi chan.
        So need a heading grid for each ....
  + bring back sendnote() funtion instead of a gosub, same for each type of midi data.
  + Figure out how to do SYSEX with it, PLEASE HELP ME ON THIS!
 
 Generic midi program v. - 0.2 changes

  - fixed bad note off detection...
  - select input and output port
  - open and close selected midi ports
  - write ports to ini file
  - send receive midi data
  - modify received midi data, send it to output port
  - uses contributions by so many different people. See midi input and midi output forum posts. Links in midi under the hood section below
  - "under the hood" midi functions and subroutines at the end of this file
  - post your creations back to this midi I/O thread - that way we can all build on it.
 
  Notes - All midi in/out lib stuff is included here, no external dlls, besides winmm.dll required.
  Use of this - you should only need to edit the input part - great way to practice you if else logic and midi manipulation.
  This does not do sysex. I really want to develop that, but not sure how to go about it.
  Perhaps one day.

It is very lengthy and complexed, so your choices at this point would be; study the code and convert only what you need into AutoIt format, convert the complete code, or download the other program and use it.

Sorry to revive this topic but I was really wondering whether you actually succeeded to write some autoit code for midi interaction already that I could use as an example. If not, then I'll have to look into DLL stuff myself, that will also be my first time :graduated:
