RTP-MIDI ( Viewable on this webpage -IETF RFC 6295
- is a specification for sending/receiving standard "MIDI 1.0" messages using standard networking protocols ("Real-time Transport Protocol" and "Internet Protocol"). RTP-MIDI includes a data recovery mechanism (MIDI event journaling) to address packet loss that can occur on networks, eliminating the need for packet retransmission (which would increase latency and reduce throughput).
