Title : An Implementation Guide for RTP MIDI
Author(s) : J. Lazzaro
Filename : draft-ietf-avt-rtp-midi-guidelines-01.txt
Pages : 35

This memo offers non-normative implementation guidance for the RTP
MIDI payload format. The memo presents its advice in the context
of a network musical performance application. In this application
two musicians, located in different physical locations, interact
over a network to perform as they would if located in the same
room. Underlying the performances are RTP MIDI sessions over
unicast UDP. Algorithms for sending and receiving recovery
journals (the resiliency structure for the payload format) are
described in detail. Although the memo focuses on network musical
performance, the presented implementation advice is relevant to
other RTP MIDI applications.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
