Receives MIDI system exclusive messages from a MIDI input device. It takes an optional argument for port selection. If a MIDI system exclusive message is received, sysexin outputs raw MIDI as integers.
Specifies the port (a-z) from which to receive incoming MIDI system exclusive messages. If there is no argument, sysexin receives from port (or the first input port listed in the MIDI Setup dialog.)
The name of a MIDI input device may be used as the first argument to specify the port. The name 'all' can be used to enable the reception of MIDI messages from any port. The name 'none' can be used to prevent the object from receiving MIDI messages from any port.
