By default the MIDI device will work in the traditional mode (MIDI_MODE_TRADITIONAL). In this mode there is no driver level timing and every byte written to the device file will be transmitted as quickly as possible.
Since version 4.0 of the OSS API there is also a timed mode which supports driver level timing. This mode can be enabled by using the SNDCTL_MIDI_SETMODE ioctl call. This section explains how to use this mode.
