tacet – reset MIDI channels to ensure silence
`` tacet [-i hex]``
The tacet command resets the MIDI output. It sends “all-notes-off” commands on MIDI channels 1-16. The tacet command is useful if a MIDI application has terminated abnormally – leaving one or more sounding notes (“ciphers”) on a MIDI device.
The tacet command provides the following options:
-h displays a help screen summarizing the command syntax -i hex assign MIDI input/output address to hex
Options are specified in the command line.
The -i option is used to specify the input/output address of the MIDI card. The default address is `330.’ The address is specified as a hexadecimal number.
DOS 2.0 and up.
