I've just gotten my hands on a Block (a very cool device indeed), and I'm playing around with Max for Live trying to write a simple step sequencer. The first thing I'm stuck on is that although for the beat being played, I can get the LED to flash, as the flash has a length, I'm having trouble with regards getting them to stay on to say that they've been pressed.
Max doesn't appear to deal very well with just note on, without note off (i.e. makenote insists on having a note duration). How do I get this to work? There's a very cryptic mention of using sysex to do this in the manual, but I can't figure it out at all. Does anyone have a simple example that works?
