So like, how do midi drums work? I am playing with a Korg Nano Pad II 
and looking at the midi flow with my scope (i know, lame). Something I 
am curious about: I get a burst when I hit a pad ( expected) and another 
burst when I release it. Huh? Is that a note off command? Is it treated 
like a key being pressed it you hit and hold?

Btw the MidiHost 
<http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/usb-host/usb-host-board-v2> thingie from 
HobbyTronics is pretty cool. Eventually I will have to conquer doing USB 
Midi on an STM32, but for now I am having fun with this gizmo. I think 
I'll turn this one into a new-to-old Midi Convertor, and get a few more 
for the Washington of it.
