This memo offers non-normative implementation guidance for the
Real-time Protocol (RTP) MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)
payload format.  The memo presents its advice in the context of a
network musical performance application.  In this application two
musicians, located in different physical locations, interact over a
network to perform as they would if located in the same room.
Underlying the performances are RTP MIDI sessions over unicast UDP.
Algorithms for sending and receiving recovery journals (the resiliency
structure for the payload format) are described in detail.  Although
the memo focuses on network musical performance, the presented
implementation advice is relevant to other RTP MIDI applications.  

This document is a product of the Audio/Video Transport
Working Group of the IETF.
