PortMidi Chez Scheme wrapper.

Status: in progress.

Dependency versions: PortMidi 217 and Chez Scheme 9.5.1



Load Library

libportmidi shared library should be installed somewhere in the PATH, let’s load it depending on platform:

;; <load-library>
(define init-ffi
  (case (machine-type)
    [(i3nt ti3nt a6nt ta6nt) (load-shared-object "libportmidi.dll")]
    [(i3osx ti3osx a6osx ta6osx) (load-shared-object "libportmidi.dylib")]
    [(i3le ti3le a6le ta6le) (load-shared-object "libportmidi.so")]
    [else (error "portmidi"
                 "don't know how libportmidi shared library file is called on this machine-type"
;; </load-library>

Machine type correspondence to platform could be found in release notes.

Data Structures

Defining foreign types (ftypes) 0for interaction with C code gives runtime checks and more clarity. To have mutually recursive ftypes we will describe them one by one and then put into the single define-ftype.

TODO Auto-generate most of this from portmidi.h


Chez Scheme FFI has no representation for enums, we are going to make them just int aliases.

We are going to keep original names while defining foreign procedures, thus let’s write a macro to save few keystrokes:

    [(_ [name args result])
     #`(define name

  ;; Test whether stream has a pending host error. Normally, the client finds

  ;; the error can be accessed and cleared by calling Pm_GetErrorText().
  ;; Errors are also cleared by calling other functions that can return
  ;; errors, e.g. Pm_OpenInput(), Pm_OpenOutput(), Pm_Read(), Pm_Write(). The
  ;; client does not need to call Pm_HasHostError(). Any pending error will be

  [Pm_CountDevices () int]

  ;; Pm_GetDefaultInputDeviceID(), Pm_GetDefaultOutputDeviceID()

  ;; Return the default device ID or pmNoDevice if there are no devices.
  ;; The result (but not pmNoDevice) can be passed to Pm_OpenMidi().

  ;; The default device can be specified using a small application
  ;; named pmdefaults that is part of the PortMidi distribution. This
  ;; program in turn uses the Java Preferences object created by
  ;; java.util.prefs.Preferences.userRoot().node("/PortMidi"); the
  ;; preference is set by calling
  ;;     prefs.put("PM_RECOMMENDED_OUTPUT_DEVICE", prefName);
  ;; or  prefs.put("PM_RECOMMENDED_INPUT_DEVICE", prefName);

  ;; In the statements above, prefName is a string describing the
  ;; MIDI device in the form "interf, name" where interf identifies
  ;; the underlying software system or API used by PortMdi to access
  ;; devices and name is the name of the device. These correspond to
  ;; the interf and name fields of a PmDeviceInfo. (Currently supported
  ;; interfaces are "MMSystem" for Win32, "ALSA" for Linux, and
  ;; "CoreMIDI" for OS X, so in fact, there is no choice of interface.)
  ;; In "interf, name", the strings are actually substrings of
  ;; the full interface and name strings. For example, the preference
  ;; "Core, Sport" will match a device with interface "CoreMIDI"
  ;; and name "In USB MidiSport 1x1". It will also match "CoreMIDI"
  ;; and "In USB MidiSport 2x2". The devices are enumerated in device
  ;; ID order, so the lowest device ID that matches the pattern becomes
  ;; the default device. Finally, if the comma-space (", ") separator
  ;; between interface and name parts of the preference is not found,
  ;; the entire preference string is interpreted as a name, and the
  ;; interface part is the empty string, which matches anything.

  ;; On the MAC, preferences are stored in
  ;;   /Users/$NAME/Library/Preferences/com.apple.java.util.prefs.plist
  ;; which is a binary file. In addition to the pmdefaults program,
  ;; there are utilities that can read and edit this preference file.

  ;; Pm_GetDeviceInfo() returns a pointer to a PmDeviceInfo structure
  ;; referring to the device specified by id.
  ;; If id is out of range the function returns NULL.

  ;; not be manipulated or freed. The pointer is guaranteed to be valid
  ;; between calls to Pm_Initialize() and Pm_Terminate().
  [Pm_GetDeviceInfo (int) (* PmDeviceInfo)]

  ;; Pm_OpenInput() and Pm_OpenOutput() open devices.

  ;; stream is the address of a PortMidiStream pointer which will receive
  ;; a pointer to the newly opened stream.

  ;; inputDevice is the id of the device used for input (see PmDeviceID above).

  ;; inputDriverInfo is a pointer to an optional driver specific data structure
  ;; containing additional information for device setup or handle processing.
  ;; inputDriverInfo is never required for correct operation. If not used
  ;; inputDriverInfo should be NULL.

  ;; outputDevice is the id of the device used for output (see PmDeviceID above.)

  ;; outputDriverInfo is a pointer to an optional driver specific data structure
  ;; containing additional information for device setup or handle processing.
  ;; outputDriverInfo is never required for correct operation. If not used
  ;; outputDriverInfo should be NULL.

  ;; For input, the buffersize specifies the number of input events to be
  ;; buffered waiting to be read using Pm_Read(). For output, buffersize
  ;; specifies the number of output events to be buffered waiting for output.
  ;; (In some cases -- see below -- PortMidi does not buffer output at all
  ;; and merely passes data to a lower-level API, in which case buffersize
  ;; is ignored.)

  ;; latency is the delay in milliseconds applied to timestamps to determine
  ;; when the output should actually occur. (If latency is < 0, 0 is assumed.)
  ;; If latency is zero, timestamps are ignored and all output is delivered
  ;; immediately. If latency is greater than zero, output is delayed until the
  ;; message timestamp plus the latency. (NOTE: the time is measured relative
  ;; to the time source indicated by time_proc. Timestamps are absolute,
  ;; not relative delays or offsets.) In some cases, PortMidi can obtain
  ;; better timing than your application by passing timestamps along to the
  ;; device driver or hardware. Latency may also help you to synchronize midi
  ;; data to audio data by matching midi latency to the audio buffer latency.

  ;; time_proc is a pointer to a procedure that returns time in milliseconds. It
  ;; may be NULL, in which case a default millisecond timebase (PortTime) is
  ;; used. If the application wants to use PortTime, it should start the timer
  ;; (call Pt_Start) before calling Pm_OpenInput or Pm_OpenOutput. If the
  ;; application tries to start the timer *after* Pm_OpenInput or Pm_OpenOutput,
  ;; it may get a ptAlreadyStarted error from Pt_Start, and the application's
  ;; preferred time resolution and callback function will be ignored.
  ;; time_proc result values are appended to incoming MIDI data, and time_proc
  ;; times are used to schedule outgoing MIDI data (when latency is non-zero).

  ;; time_info is a pointer passed to time_proc.

  ;; Example: If I provide a timestamp of 5000, latency is 1, and time_proc
  ;; returns 4990, then the desired output time will be when time_proc returns
  ;; timestamp+latency = 5001. This will be 5001-4990 = 11ms from now.

  ;; return value:
  ;; Upon success Pm_Open() returns PmNoError and places a pointer to a
  ;; valid PortMidiStream in the stream argument.
  ;; If a call to Pm_Open() fails a nonzero error code is returned (see
  ;; PMError above) and the value of port is invalid.

  ;; Any stream that is successfully opened should eventually be closed
  ;; by calling Pm_Close().

  ;; synthesizer and interfaces number channels starting at 1, but
  ;; PortMidi numbers channels starting at 0.

  ;; All channels are allowed by default
  [Pm_SetChannelMask (PortMidiStream int) int]

  ;; Pm_Abort() terminates outgoing messages immediately
  ;; The caller should immediately close the output port;
  ;; this call may result in transmission of a partial midi message.
  ;; There is no abort for Midi input because the user can simply
  ;; ignore messages in the buffer and close an input device at
  ;; any time.
  [Pm_Abort (PortMidiStream) int]

  ;; Pm_Close() closes a midi stream, flushing any pending buffers.
  ;; (PortMidi attempts to close open streams when the application
  ;; exits -- this is particularly difficult under Windows.)
  [Pm_Close (PortMidiStream) int]

  ;; Pm_Synchronize() instructs PortMidi to (re)synchronize to the
  ;; time_proc passed when the stream was opened. Typically, this
  ;; is used when the stream must be opened before the time_proc
  ;; reference is actually advancing. In this case, message timing
  ;; may be erratic, but since timestamps of zero mean
  ;; "send immediately," initialization messages with zero timestamps
  ;; can be written without a functioning time reference and without
  ;; problems. Before the first MIDI message with a non-zero
  ;; timestamp is written to the stream, the time reference must
  ;; begin to advance (for example, if the time_proc computes time
  ;; based on audio samples, time might begin to advance when an
  ;; audio stream becomes active). After time_proc return values
  ;; become valid, and BEFORE writing the first non-zero timestamped
  ;; MIDI message, call Pm_Synchronize() so that PortMidi can observe
  ;; the difference between the current time_proc value and its
  ;; MIDI stream time.

  ;; In the more normal case where time_proc
  ;; values advance continuously, there is no need to call
  ;; Pm_Synchronize. PortMidi will always synchronize at the
  ;; first output message and periodically thereafter.
  [Pm_Synchronize (PortMidiStream) int]

  ;; All midi data comes in the form of PmEvent structures. A sysex
  ;; message is encoded as a sequence of PmEvent structures, with each
  ;; structure carrying 4 bytes of the message, i.e. only the first
  ;; PmEvent carries the status byte.

  ;; Note that MIDI allows nested messages: the so-called "real-time" MIDI
  ;; messages can be inserted into the MIDI byte stream at any location,
  ;; including within a sysex message. MIDI real-time messages are one-byte
  ;; messages used mainly for timing (see the MIDI spec). PortMidi retains
  ;; the order of non-real-time MIDI messages on both input and output, but
  ;; it does not specify exactly how real-time messages are processed. This
  ;; is particulary problematic for MIDI input, because the input parser
  ;; must either prepare to buffer an unlimited number of sysex message
  ;; bytes or to buffer an unlimited number of real-time messages that
  ;; arrive embedded in a long sysex message. To simplify things, the input
  ;; parser is allowed to pass real-time MIDI messages embedded within a
  ;; sysex message, and it is up to the client to detect, process, and
  ;; remove these messages as they arrive.

  ;; When receiving sysex messages, the sysex message is terminated
  ;; by either an EOX status byte (anywhere in the 4 byte messages) or
  ;; by a non-real-time status byte in the low order byte of the message.
  ;; If you get a non-real-time status byte but there was no EOX byte, it
  ;; means the sysex message was somehow truncated. This is not
  ;; considered an error; e.g., a missing EOX can result from the user
  ;; disconnecting a MIDI cable during sysex transmission.

  ;; A real-time message can occur within a sysex message. A real-time
  ;; message will always occupy a full PmEvent with the status byte in
  ;; the low-order byte of the PmEvent message field. (This implies that
  ;; the byte-order of sysex bytes and real-time message bytes may not
  ;; be preserved -- for example, if a real-time message arrives after
  ;; 3 bytes of a sysex message, the real-time message will be delivered
  ;; first. The first word of the sysex message will be delivered only
  ;; after the 4th byte arrives, filling the 4-byte PmEvent message field.

  ;; The timestamp field is observed when the output port is opened with
  ;; a non-zero latency. A timestamp of zero means "use the current time",
  ;; which in turn means to deliver the message with a delay of
  ;; latency (the latency parameter used when opening the output port.)
  ;; Do not expect PortMidi to sort data according to timestamps --
  ;; messages should be sent in the correct order, and timestamps MUST
  ;; be non-decreasing. See also "Example" for Pm_OpenOutput() above.

  ;; A sysex message will generally fill many PmEvent structures. On
  ;; output to a PortMidiStream with non-zero latency, the first timestamp
  ;; on sysex message data will determine the time to begin sending the
  ;; message. PortMidi implementations may ignore timestamps for the
  ;; remainder of the sysex message.

  ;; On input, the timestamp ideally denotes the arrival time of the
  ;; status byte of the message. The first timestamp on sysex message
  ;; data will be valid. Subsequent timestamps may denote
  ;; when message bytes were actually received, or they may be simply
  ;; copies of the first timestamp.

  ;; Timestamps for nested messages: If a real-time message arrives in
  ;; the middle of some other message, it is enqueued immediately with
  ;; the timestamp corresponding to its arrival time. The interrupted
  ;; non-real-time message or 4-byte packet of sysex data will be enqueued
  ;; later. The timestamp of interrupted data will be equal to that of
  ;; the interrupting real-time message to insure that timestamps are
  ;; non-decreasing.

  ;; Pm_Read() retrieves midi data into a buffer, and returns the number
  ;; of events read. Result is a non-negative number unless an error occurs,
  ;; in which case a PmError value will be returned.

  ;; Buffer Overflow

  ;; The problem: if an input overflow occurs, data will be lost, ultimately
  ;; because there is no flow control all the way back to the data source.
  ;; When data is lost, the receiver should be notified and some sort of
  ;; graceful recovery should take place, e.g. you shouldn't resume receiving
  ;; in the middle of a long sysex message.

  ;; With a lock-free fifo, which is pretty much what we're stuck with to
  ;; enable portability to the Mac, it's tricky for the producer and consumer
  ;; to synchronously reset the buffer and resume normal operation.

  ;; Solution: the buffer managed by PortMidi will be flushed when an overflow
  ;; occurs. The consumer (Pm_Read()) gets an error message (pmBufferOverflow)
  ;; and ordinary processing resumes as soon as a new message arrives. The
  ;; remainder of a partial sysex message is not considered to be a "new
  ;; message" and will be flushed as well.
