Working on a mixer controlled by a midi controller (bcf-2000) connected to a midi interface (midi man). It works very well except if I loose connection to the controller, I must restart my mixer. I can reproduce the problem by just unpluggin the usb cable and plugging it back in.
It seems I should be able to tell by sending to the controller, but the sendMessageNow return is void. Is there a way to detect it is not working?
I would like to restablish the midi connection without stopping audio. Can this be done?
I am using the AudioDeviceManager for audio and midi. How do I get the AudioDeviceManager to reconnect to the midi device? For output I use midiOut = MainContentComponent::getSharedAudioDeviceManager().getDefaultMidiOutput(); .
For inputs I do this to setup my conntection:
const StringArray allMidiIns (MidiInput::getDevices());
for (int x=0 ; x<allMidiIns.size() ; x++)
if (getSharedAudioDeviceManager().isMidiInputEnabled(allMidiIns[x])) m_MidiInputs.add(allMidiIns[x]);
I assume a file descriptor to the port is opened somewhere and it needs to get closed and opened again. How do I do that without stopping audio? Does getDefaultMidiOutput do this? Does call to addMididInputCallback do this? If not, what call methods could do this?
