Recieve / Send MIDI messages

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Nov 18, 2013 6:01 pm

Is it possible to recieve and/or send MIDI messages with Construct2? If not, how complicated would it be to create a plugin for it?

The world of musicians would find a lot of use for this. For example when making live-preformance setups.

I suppose it's possible, but only with a plugin. With a google search I found this javascript library that could give a starting point:

From what I can tell it uses java as a backend to access the midi devices as javascript prevents any direct access to the computers hardware.

Google are working on a MIDI API for Chrome. We will probably support it officially if/when it comes.

Hello @Ashley. Any plans to support the official Web MIDI API: http://www.engadget.com/2015/05/20/chrome-midi-support/?

I'm not asking for an ETA, just whether if it's planned for the future on your infamous feature request list.

Thanks much.

Edit: CRAP! Sorry for necroing such an old topic. Surprised they don't auto lock after a year or so.
