MIDI Start message

A MIDI event that carries the MIDI start message tells a MIDI slave device to start playback.

This message belongs to the category of MIDI system realtime messages.

This message consists of a single byte of data. This byte is the status byte and has a value of 0xFA.

Playback starts at the current song at the beginning (MIDI beat zero). The MIDI continue message is used to start at some other point, which could be set with the MIDI song position pointer message, or could be the point where MIDI playback was previously stopped.
