Numbers received in the inlets from midiformat objects are routed as MPE-compatible MIDI messages. In addition, the object outputs messages for use with instruments hosted by the vst~ object.
An argument can be used to set the number of MIDI input channels. The number of inlets will be one more than the argument value, since the leftmost inlet is a global MIDI input. If no argument is specified, one Zone Master Channel input and 15 channel inputs will be created.
chanrange [int] (default: 1)
The channel range specifies the number of channels following the Zone Master Channel (15 by default. mpeformat object (i.e. the number of input channels). If you set the attribute's value as an argument (e.g. , you will set the number of inlets the object has, as well.
Note: You can set this attribute to a value between 1 and the Channel range if this change only effects the config MIDI message received from a mpeconfig object.
masterchan [int] (default: 1)
Sets the first MIDI channel to be addressed. All other channels number from there.
zone [int] (default: 1)
Sets the MPE MIDI Zone ID.

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.
ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.
position [2 floats]
Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.
presentation [int] (default: 0)
Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.
presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.
