Converts raw MIDI data to BASS_MIDI_EVENT structures.

DWORD BASS_MIDI_ConvertEvents(
    BYTE *data,
    DWORD length
    BASS_MIDI_EVENT *events,
    DWORD count,
    DWORD flags


dataThe raw MIDI data.
lengthThe length of the data.
eventsPointer to an array to receive the events... NULL = get the number of events without getting the events themselves.
countThe maximum number of events to convert.
flagsA combination of these flags.
BASS_MIDI_EVENTS_NORSTATUSDisable running status, meaning each event must include a status byte.
BASS_MIDI_EVENTS_TIMEThe raw MIDI data includes delta-time info.

Return value

If successful, the number of events processed is returned, else -1 is returned. Use BASS_ErrorGetCode to get the error code.

Error codes

BASS_ERROR_MEMThere is insufficient memory.
BASS_ERROR_UNKNOWNSome mystery problem!


The MIDI port meta-event (21h) is supported, allowing access to more than the standard 16 channels: port 0 = channels 1-16, port 1 = channels 17-32, etc. Up to 8 ports are supported for a maximum of 128 channels, with any higher ports being mapped to port 0 (channels 1-16).


Convert some raw MIDI data.
BYTE data[7] = {0x90, 60, 100, 64, 100, 67, 100}; // the event data
BASS_MIDI_ConvertEvents(data, 7, events, 3, 0); // convert the events

Convert the same data with delta-time info.

BYTE data[10] = {0, 0x90, 60, 100, 0, 64, 100, 0, 67, 100}; // the event data
BASS_MIDI_ConvertEvents(data, 10, events, 3, BASS_MIDI_EVENTS_TIME); // convert the events
