Hi, I'm working on implementing Bluetooth MIDI for my controller. I've read the spec (version 1.0) and got it set up transmitting MIDI via BLE.

However, I want to explore the possibility of also receiving MIDI. I see no mention of that in the spec. Is this currently a possibility?

I'm testing on OSX, using Audio MIDI Setup to connect to my device. The device appears only as an input, not an output. Is there anything I can configure on the device to make it appear as input and output?

Edit: I've figured out what the problem was. I forgot to set the "write without response" property of the I/O characteristic. Setting that property, I can send MIDI messages to the device via BLE.

Any chance that you have come any further with this project?

This week I've just started myself trying to get MIDI program changes from my iPad to my Voicelive 3 over BLE using an ESP32.

Would you be willing to share some of your work (hardware and software)?
