The Jazz plugin is a MIDI plugin that works in all major browsers. Until now, it supported MIDI out only, but today a new version with MIDI in support was released for testing. Currently this beta version is for Windows only. All major browsers are supported. I made an example that shows you how to setup MIDI connections with the Jazz plugin, see: http://abumarkub.net/jazz/

I guess I know what was the problem with Internet Explorer.
in the file jazz.js
These functions take no parameters and IE is too strict about that.
Actually, you don’t really need to call these functions. Plugin automatically closes the previous connection when you open a new one.
Thanks for your comment! I have updated the code and now it works fine in Internet Explorer.
There is only one issue left: if you set the plugin object’s visibility to hidden, the MIDI input devices are detected correctly but the MIDI events are not showing up in the callback handler.
this is awesome but it has a fair amout of lag compared to the actual midi signal.. also, i can use this plugin to create anything in flash with midi connectivity such as a game?
The lag you experience is the latency of your sound generating device, probably the built-in sound synthesizer. You can read more about it here:
Does your game need midi input or midi output or both?
