The argument is a tab representing a midi message, see function @midi_read. The @midi_getChannel extracts from this tab the channel of the message if the message corresponds to a channel specific command (i.e., noteOn, noteOff, Aftertouch, Controller, PatchChange, Pressure and Pitchbend, see @midi_read).

On a non-channel specific command, the result is undeterminate.
