AKAI MPK mini play and USB HID data

When using my AKAI MPK mini play the other day I realized i might want to transpose/switch midi clock etc. from a physical device. Since i’ve never done something like this before I emailed AKAI customer service requesting information on what messages the AKAI MPK play wants in order to do this in real time. The transpose/midi clock feature is usually accessed through the AKAI software “Favorite editor”. While waiting for some sort of answer from AKAI i’ll be trying to emulate the MPK play with an Arduino to see how hack-proof the MPK play is.
