Midiformat

Does anyone know what the additional number is that midiformat adds on to note on midi messages?

And how to stop it!?

Thanks,

Alex

[midiformat] outputs a stream of numbers (bytes) according to the midi specification.
Note on is represented by 3 sequenced numbers, for example 144, 60, 80.
The first number (status byte) encodes event type and channel, 60 is pitch and 80 is velocity.

If you connect [midiformat] to a [midiparse] object the left outlet will give you the list <60 80>.
