The Midi Connection, Part II

By Kirk Austin, San Anselmo, CA.

As you may recall from last issue all we need to get MIDI up and running on the Macintosh now that we have the necessary hardware are the driver routines for the serial ports. Fear not fellow coders, the coveted routines have arrived.

The normal device driver model for the Macintosh has too much overhead associated with it to make it approriate for use with MIDI which transfers data at a rate of 31.25K bits per second. Usually, real time applications need all the extra time they can get. This is particularly true of sequencer type applications that do MIDI "multi-track recording" while simultaneously maintaining a graphics display of some sort. routines that directly access the 8530 SCC chip have been utilized in order to minimize the time taken up by the serial I/O. I have tried to make things as easy as possible by providing "building block" style routines that follow the guidelines of the Lisa Pascal interface. This is the reason for the LINK and UNLNK instructions which aren't really necessary otherwise. You can basically treat RxMIDI as a Pascal function that accepts no arguments and returns a word of data as a result that is either a valid MIDI byte or else a flag indicating that no MIDI data is available. TxMIDI can be treated as a Pascal procedure that accepts a word of data containing the MIDI byte to be transmitted as an argument. Both of these routines are stack based.

Since these routines include interrupt handlers with pointers placed in low memory the routines cannot be in a relocatable block. One easy way of insuring this is to place them in your first code segment. If your code only consists of one segment you don't have anything to worry about, but if there is more than one segment the memory manager may move things around on you when you don't expect it. If your interrupt handlers are in one of these relocatable segments the pointers to them can be invalidated which would cause the program to crash.

Okay, let's get down to it. First the SCC chip has to be initialized by calling either SCCinitA or SCCinitB (this should be done when your application initializes quickdraw and the various managers). The initialization ends up being quite a bit of code actually, and if not done properly will mess things up but good! The 8530 can only be accessed at a maximum rate of every 2.2 microseconds. I know, this sounds unbelievable for a sophisticated piece of modern hardware, but it's true. This is the reason for all of the MOVE.L (SP),(SP) instructions. They don't accomplish anything, but they take a little more than a couple of microseconds to execute which is just the amount of delay that we need (silly huh?). As I mentioned in the article on the hardware interface the SCC chip can accept three different external clock frequencys to produce the desired baud rate. The appropriate divisor must be selected in the initialize routine. By the way, these routines are written so you can use either the modem port or the printer port, but if you want to use both simultaneously and keep the ports completely independant you will have to duplicate everything for each port. If you are writing an application of that complexity I think you can handle rewriting these routines.

The transmit and receive routines each maintain circular queues of outgoing and incoming data respectively. These queues can be of any length, but I have arbitrarily set them at $100 bytes each. To change the size of the queues just change the values in the equate table. There is no error detection code for a queue overrun condition so you will have to make sure that your application runs fast enough to avoid this. If an overrun condition occurs you will lose data. If you want to dump huge files all at once (if you are writing a patch librarian for example) just make the queue big enough to handle the entire file and you can do it without worrying about overruns.

The TxMIDI routine is the most complicated one, so let's have a look at it. When this routine receives a byte to transmit (in the lower byte of the word left on the stack by the calling routine) it first must check the queue to see if it is empty or not. If the queue is not empty the byte is simply added to the queue. If the queue is empty the routine checks the SCC chip to see if its transmit buffer is empty. If the transmit buffer is not empty the byte is just added to the queue. But, if the transmit buffer is empty the routine must write the byte to the SCC chip to transmit it.

The RxMIDI routine is more straightforward. It checks to see if there is any data in the queue, and if there is it returns it on the stack (the space for the result must be allocated by the calling routine). If there is no data available the routine returns $FFFF as its result.

The interrupt handlers do exactly what you might expect them to. When a byte is received by the SCC chip a receive interrupt is generated which calls the RxIntHand routine. This routine simply takes the byte from the SCC register and places it in the receive queue. The TxIntHand routine is called when the SCC chip's transmit buffer is empty. It takes a byte from the transmit queue if one is available and writes it to the SCC register. If no data is available it clears the interrupt and returns. One thing about the interrupt handlers that was not obvious to me when I was first coding them was the fact that register A5 must be saved at the beginning of the routines and its value loaded from the system variable CurrentA5 in order to insure that it is pointing to the application's globals area.

Only one thing left to do, and that is reset the 8530 before you quit the application or try to print (if you are using the printer port for MIDI too). Just call SCCResetA or SCCResetB and your application will exit gracefully.
