Why would you want to do that ? Jack MIDI is received by
Jack's realtime thread which also calls the DSP code (or
so I assume). So any MIDI events that will be handled 
by the DSP code (normally note-on and off and controllers)
don't need to be buffered at all. You'd need to buffer
only those events that can't be handled by the real time
DSP code (e.g. program change).



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
