Represents a MIDI message from a MIDI device, such as a musical keyboard.


InputEventMIDI stores information about messages from MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) devices. These may include musical keyboards, synthesizers, and drum machines.

MIDI messages can be received over a 5-pin MIDI connector or over USB. If your device supports both be sure to check the settings in the device to see which output it is using.

By default, Godot does not detect MIDI devices. You need to call OS.open_midi_inputs, first. You can check which devices are detected with OS.get_connected_midi_inputs, and close the connection with OS.close_midi_inputs.
