I'm not sure whether this is on topic here. Please direct me elsewhere if it isn't.
I wonder about the MIDI In port of the Launchpad Pro. From Ableton you can send MIDI messages to the Launchpad, specifically notes to light up the pads.
I wonder if this is also the only use of the MIDI In port.
What I want to do is built a Arduino-based MIDI controller that I can use with my Launchpad. It is supposed to send MIDI messages like Pitch Bend, Modulation or Sustain Pedal.
My question is:
If I send MIDI controller messages to the MIDI In port of the Launchpad would they be send to my computer / Ableton?
