currently it can be controlled by MMC messages only, basically
start/stop/relocate messages

adding support for simpler functions (metronome on/off, switching
between filters and alike) with sysex messages would be trivial.

editing functions and the load/save functions would be trickier to
trigger through midi because midi devices are closed during
invocation of these functions.
