Channel Mode Messages


Channel Mode Messages provide a way to control how the receiving device will respond to all incoming voice messages (like notes and pitch bends). In addition, some channel mode messages may be used for such specialized tasks as controlling lights on a MIDI controlled lighting console or for clearing buffers on a MIDI controlled signal processor.
