pchmidi

pchmidi — Get the note number of the current MIDI event, expressed in pitch-class units.

Description

Get the note number of the current MIDI event, expressed in pitch-class units.

Syntax

ipch pchmidi

Performance

Get the note number of the current MIDI event, expressed in pitch-class units for local processing.

[Note] pchmidi vs. pchmidinn

The pchmidi opcode only produces meaningful results in a Midi-activated note (either real-time or from a Midi score with the -F flag). With pchmidi, the Midi note number value is taken from the Midi event that is internally associated with the instrument instance. On the other hand, the pchmidinn opcode may be used in any Csound instrument instance whether it is activated from a Midi event, score event, line event, or from another instrument. The input value for pchmidinn might for example come from a p-field in a textual score or it may have been retrieved from the real-time Midi event that activated the current note using the notnum opcode.

Examples

Here is an example of the pchmidi opcode. It uses the file pchmidi.csd.
