MIDI package detection

#1

I am trying to install midi functionality with OSC but am running into this problem.
Does either package need to be placed somewhere for OSC to detect rtMIDI?

#2

There shouldn’t be any additional step, however your python-rtmidi version is unusual, can you run pip install python-rtimidi --upgrade to get the latest stable release and try again ?

#3

Got it to detect, the way RTM needs to be installed is kinda funky, I’m planning on writing a short guide on Midi once i get everything figured out myself.
For now, I’m getting this error.

Can you list your midi ports to the console?

And what are your midi settings?
(e.g. --midi MIDIPORTNAME:INPUTPORT,OUTPUTPORT)

#7

Your logs indicate a malformed target, you are supposed to define the widget’s target to "midi:NAME" where NAME is the name defined in the server’s midi option (see @GeneralMidi’s comment), not the actual port’s name from the port lists.

Did you have to navigate in a particular folder before installing the library to make it work ? It might be a typical windows problem I could mention in the docs if that’s the case.

I had no problems installing and I’m on Windows. Others have confirmed also it works with no problems. Perhaps follow this guide :

Please note that this tutorial is not up to date, the Visual C++ build tools parts is not necessary anymore.
