I went to midi.city/ with 87 and it could read MIDI events without asking for permission, even while another tab is active.

Does this mean that all websites can silently snoop on MIDI? 😰

Also, what synth software should I use on Linux? I'm looking for something that would take multiple MIDI inputs from different instruments.

@BollerwagenPicard @kai @tagomago I want to use the instruments all at once, to play as a band with friends.

I'm not that versed, but I think that's expected from every MIDI software? I use the Rosegarden sequencer backed with the Qsynth synthesizer.

This tutorial was useful to me: youtube.com/watch?v=FVhAneOg0s

@tagomago @codewiz @kai Usas algún programa con instrumentos, teclado y tal para Linux que no sea demasiado complicado?

@tronss

No, solo el ratón y el teclado del ordenador. He hecho solo un poquito de composición, así que con la interfaz gráfica y un poco de paciencia es suficiente. Pero sí, a Rosegarden le puedes enchufar instrumentos midi, creo recordar que en el tutorial de arriba se usa un teclado.

@tagomago ¿Sabes si con un teclado usb se puede hacer algo ahí?

@codewiz @kai @tagomago I think midi is considered safe to read by Website

@BollerwagenPicard @kai @tagomago Chromium has a permission for MIDI, a d it's set to "Ask every time". But then it doesn't ask. Looks like a bug to me...

@codewiz @kai @tagomago könnte aber auch für das Schreiben von Midi Signalen sein und nicht zum Lesen?

@codewiz Btw, I opened the inspector and I think that what you hear on midi.city is not midi but pre-recorded ogg files and a bunch of JS, that's why you can play it so easily.

@tagomago @codewiz But if you've got a MIDI device plugged in, then the browser can read it. Hearing it playing what you're playing into your MIDI keyboard is the issue.

@wizzwizz4 @tagomago Yes, just plug a instrument into the computer, and will let midi.city receive all the events. No need to grant permissions.

@tagomago I filed a bug yesterday, and it was closed as duplicate of another bug which is not publicly visible:

bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/i

@codewiz sorry I really have no idea about any of this stuff 😅
