Hi

I need to get MIDI Message data from a MIDI instrument connected to the MIDI
IN port of the computer. What format is the incoming data in? How do I convert
it to a MIDI Message format?

Thanks

If you are using CMaxMidiIn::Get() to get the MIDI Message data, the message
structure is given in Appendix A (page 265 in my edition of the book). You do
have to look at the status byte to figure out what other bytes are valid for
that status. I don't understand what you mean by "convert it to a MIDI
Message format."
