MIDI programming in Hardware Mode

I'm trying to program an XKeys 4-Stick so that each button sends a unique MIDI note. This needs to be done in hardware mode because the data must be in MIDI format before reaching the computer. I have the SDK but I have no idea what to do with it. I know that Macroworks can work in hardware mode and that Controller Mate can form MIDI commands. However, MW cannot do MIDI and, to the best of my knowledge, CM cannot program to hardware (although PI was somewhat circumspect about this). Can anyone point me in the right direction? I need to get this done within a week. I'm willing to pay if someone can program it. Thanks!

Re: MIDI programming in Hardware Mode

The SDK is useful only to software developers writing their own software. There is not a way to send MIDI via our devices, there are at least two examples of software that can emulate midi messages (CM and vMix) but they would not be able to take advantage of our Hardware mode programming. If you find a software developer they could use our SDK to write something for you. However, it's important to note that our devices do not have pressure sensitivity like you might want in a MIDI device.
