Hello,

Can real time messages interrupt normal messages? For instance can a noteon message be interrupted by an active sensing or a song position pointer? If yes, can a real time message be interrupted by another one? I ask because reading the midi message description, it seems that it is possible to write a driver like this.

Yes, real time messages can interrupt other messages, as you already have found. The other way around: system real time messages are all 1 byte long, so by design they can't be interrupted by other messages. There are also longer Universal System Exclusive real time messages that shouldn't be interrupted, IMHO.
