There aren't that many midi2 applications and many of those that
exist probably can be adapted. The midi2 kit has quite a few bugs
and features IIRC and I think they should be fixed; there was never
any documentation anyway...

I doubt if even binary compatibility is that important...

Subject: [openbeos-midi] Midi2 handling of SysEx data

Hi people,

I'm working on some SexEx Send/Receive tools, and found out that SysEx data
handled by Midi2 gets the first and last bytes stripped off. This is very
annoying, as I have to add the 0xf0/0xf7 bytes by hand in each
BMidiLocalConsumer function where I handly SysEx, which adds considerable

Is this a bug, or supposed to be a feature? The docs should be updated to
reflect this behavior. And we can't even fix it, as other programs may rely
on this by now...
