JS update to read MIDI Text Event contents
Update JS to allow scripts to read the contents of MIDI Text Events.

Regarding MIDI text events, currently JS has the capability to read only the event type: 1 = text event, 2 = copyright notice, …

This feature request is to grant JS plugins the ability to read extended metadata associated with a text event (namely, the string itself) [edit] AND any other similar long messages, such as sysex.

Also, at this stage only short text events of one byte in length are being sent through at all.

Roadmap:

Ideally, once this is incorporated, text events fused into notes themselves could be added, allowing for such things as sophisticated articulation embedding of virtual instruments, which is outlined here: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=34313 and here: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=39327

This should be to support long messages (sysex and/or text) ;)

Edit: (agreeing we need to support this, though not just text, also sysex ;)

Justin, I understand you're talking about something like sysRCV(), right?

Oh sure, exactly! I’m down for any and all data that can be made available to JS for processing purposes. :)

Sorry, I mistakenly had the vague impression that JS already supported sysex in this way (turns out it was only for sending), so was just adding the text event part to the melting pot. Consider sysex part of the game plan.

Good to know this has some (fairly hefty) support. Great news! Many thanks. :)

Edit: because all the cool kids are doing it.

Hello again.

Mods, any chance of changing the issue name to something like JS update to support long messages, as Justin has suggested? Sorry, it’s been a while…

Devs, I hate to be a bad bumping boy, but any sign of this on the horizon?

Julio :)
