This memo describes the MIDI Wire Protocol Packetization (MWPP). MWPP is a resilient RTP packetization for the MIDI wire protocol; it is specialized for low-latency applications such as network musical performance. MWPP defines a multicast-compatible recovery system for gracefully handling lost and late packets during the performance.
