Key Features Of The Framework

MIDI Broadcasters Component

The plugin comes with a MIDI Broadcaster Actor Component that can be added to any Actor which will give it MIDI Event Broadcasting Capability. The Programmer just needs to call the “StartBroadcast()” function only. The “StartBroadcast” function has an input for the Midi file to play and the Audio File to play along with it. It will automatically sync with it.

MIDI Listener Component

The MIDI Listener Component is also part of the framework and gives an Actor the ability to listen to any MIDI Events that are broadcast by any MIDI Broadcasters. By Listening for MidiEvents, like NoteOn, the Actor can react to these MidiEvents as they occur.

UE5 React To MIDI File Events

MIDI Broadcasters Subsystem

The framework also comes with the MIDI Broadcasters Subsystem.
If for some reason you can not use the MIDI Listener Component, You can listen for MIDI Events through this subsystem by binding to the MIDI Note On Event both in CPP and BP.
