Does framer officially support MIDI Out yet?

I read in the MIDI Component, that you use the Web MIDI API, which does have this option. Can I access MIDI Out or should I use Web MIDI as an extra Module to get more functions?

Any help on this matter is appreciated, as I am looking to make some MIDI In/Out examples for Hardware Prototyping :)

midi out works on the framer. however, i find that when you play chord on the keyboard, the signal that you get is pretty random. individual note seems pretty accurate.

Eelco created the MIDI component and might have some advice.

Jordan Robert Dobson

You can with the jazz midi plugin. I use that for Safari so that it will support midi in. Out should work as well.

Any work towards making Framer interface with physical computing platforms would be amazing.

MIDI Out is indeed *not* offered through the Framer API, but you can use the Web MIDI API. As Jordan Robert Dobson said, the Jazz MIDI plugin ( is needed to make it work in Safari / Framer Studio (else it will use a minimal polyfill in Framer Studio, that only offers the MIDI In functionality).
