public interface Receiver extends AutoCloseable
MidiEventobjects and typically does something useful in response, such as interpreting them to generate sound or raw MIDI output. Common MIDI receivers include synthesizers and MIDI Out ports.
void send(MidiMessage message, long timeStamp)Sends a MIDI message and time-stamp to this receiver. If time-stamping is not supported by this receiver, the time-stamp value should be -1.
message- the MIDI message to send
timeStamp- the time-stamp for the message, in microseconds
IllegalStateException- if the receiver is closed
void close()Indicates that the application has finished using the receiver, and that limited resources it requires may be released or made available.
If the creation of this
Receiverresulted in implicitly opening the underlying device, the device is implicitly closed by this method. This is true unless the device is kept open by other
Transmitterinstances that opened the device implicitly, and unless the device has been opened explicitly. If the device this
Receiveris retrieved from is closed explicitly by calling
Receiveris closed, too. For a detailed description of open/close behaviour see the class description of
