This question is not about Juce actually, please do let me know if I should post it somewhere else.
So I connected the Lightpad Block via USB to my Linux machine, great it shows up as a Midi device and I can access it through ALSA.
I have the following questions:
Right now it is generating channel messages, (those described here ), but previously I have seen it generating sysex ( I believe it was while it was connected over bluetooth to noise). Is it possible to force MPE mode or API mode manually?
Can I assume this page contains the full specification for the sysex?
How much can we rely on the MPE ad API mode being supported in the future?
I find that I have to hit the pad quite hard in order to trigger a note at all (or to get the desired velocity). Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity to the touch?
Even when connected over USB, I find the response of the device is pretty slow (i.e.: a noticeable latency between hitting the pad and receiving the MIDI message on the computer). What is the declared action-to-MIDI latency? Is there a way to improve it? Is this somehow related to the 25Hz refresh rate of the LEDs?
