When I am developing with RtMidi on Mac or Windows, it can give me the names of the MIDI devices I am working with as a text string. I don’t know if it does this by MIDI protocol or by USB, but it does it somehow.
Is it possible to get this information in a OpenWare patch?
Related question: The device firmware knows when a USB device has connected or disconnected (it currently displays a message on the screen). Is it possible for a patch to be notified when this occurs?
I have skimmed the docs but not seen this.
Reasons: A patch might want to detect a specific device has been connected when it connects and send it some kind of MIDI init message (for example turning on lights). A patch might want to display the current MIDI device to the screen.
