Library code for AppleMIDI protocol RTP-MIDI (also known as AppleMIDI) is a protocol to transport MIDI messages within RTP (Real-time Protocol) packets over Ethernet and WiFi networks. It is completely open and free (no license is needed), and is compatible both with LAN and WAN application fields. Compared to MIDI 1.0, RTP-MIDI includes new features like session management, device synchronization and detection of lost packets (with automatic regeneration of lost data). RTP-MIDI is compatible with real-time applications, and supports sample-accurate synchronization for each MIDI message. (from

AppleMidi for Arduino Build Status License: CC BY-SA 4.0 GitHub version

The goal of this library is to enable an Arduino (with an Ethernet shield) or ESP8266 to particpate in an AppleMIDI session.


  • Tested with AppleMIDI on Mac OS and using rtpMIDI from Tobias Erichsen on Windows
  • Send and receive MIDI commands
  • Uses callbacks to receive MIDI commands (no need for polling)
  • Automatic instantiation of AppleMIDI object (see at the end of 'AppleMidi.h')

Basic Usage

#include "AppleMidi.h"


void setup()
// ...setup ethernet connection
AppleMIDI.begin("test"); // 'test' will show up as the session name

void loop()
// ...

// Send MIDI note 40 on, velocity 55 on channel 1
AppleMIDI.noteOn(40, 55, 1);
