Chapter two goes over the hardware.In chapter three, example code for sending MIDI is presented. Chapter four contains everythingneeded to build a working MIDI controller. MIDI input is covered in chapter five, and chapter sixextends this by adding support for System Exclusive (SysEx) messages.

MIDI Sample Dump Standard
The  MIDI  SDS  was  adopted  in  January  1986   by   the   MIDI
Manufacturers  Association  and the Japanese MIDI Standards Committee.
The SDS defines the standard method for transfer of sound sample  data
between  MIDI-equipped devices.  Sample dumps may be accomplished with
either an 'open loop' or 'closed loop' system.  The open  loop  method
simply  involves  the straight dump of all sample data from its source
to the destination, with no timeouts, packet acknowledgements,  or any
other form of handshaking, much as in the manner of a sysex bulk dump,
usually intiated at the source.  The closed loop method allows the use
of handshaking messages between the dump source and  destination,  and
usually  places  the  dump process under the control of the slave,  to
allow it time to process the incoming data as necessary.  As with  any
standard, it can not be assumed that a device adheres to it unless the
accompanying documentation specifically indicates it. Even then, it is
best to check its conformity with non-critical data. ...
