A realtime MIDI output class.
This class provides a common, platform-independent API for MIDI output. It allows one to probe available MIDI output ports, to connect to one such port, and to send MIDI bytes immediately over the connection. Create multiple instances of this class to connect to more than one MIDI device at the same time. With the OS-X and Linux ALSA MIDI APIs, it is also possible to open a virtual port to which other MIDI software clients can connect.

|RtMidiOut::RtMidiOut||(||RtMidi::Api|| api =
|const std::string|| clientName = |
Default constructor that allows an optional client name.
An exception will be thrown if a MIDI system initialization error occurs.
If no API argument is specified and multiple API support has been compiled, the default order of use is JACK, ALSA (Linux) and CORE, Jack (OS-X).
|void RtMidiOut::openPort||(||unsigned int|| portNumber =
|const std::string|| portName = |
Open a MIDI output connection.
An optional port number greater than 0 can be specified. Otherwise, the default or first port found is opened. An exception is thrown if an error occurs while attempting to make the port connection.
|void RtMidiOut::openVirtualPort||(||const std::string|| portName =
Create a virtual output port, with optional name, to allow software connections (OS X and ALSA only).
This function creates a virtual MIDI output port to which other software applications can connect. This type of functionality is currently only supported by the Macintosh OS-X and Linux ALSA APIs (the function does nothing with the other APIs). An exception is thrown if an error occurs while attempting to create the virtual port.
|std::string RtMidiOut::getPortName||(||unsigned int|| portNumber =
Return a string identifier for the specified MIDI port type and number.
An empty string is returned if an invalid port specifier is provided.
|void RtMidiOut::sendMessage||(||std::vector< unsigned char > *||message||)||
Immediately send a single message out an open MIDI output port.
An exception is thrown if an error occurs during output or an output connection was not previously established.
