    Is there a way to read MIDI note-off velocity in KSP ?

    It's all in the title, but let me elaborate just in case. You know how some fancy keyboards have release velocity - that is, they are sensitive to how fast you release a key? It's in the MIDI specifications, and it can be simulated in a MIDI sequencer (like Reaper's ;)) too. I was wondering if...
