I see. But I do suppose this is just a Mackie speciality (Weirdness).

OTOH my XTouch Compact sends rather standard Midi messages:
Note on / Note off for button push and release (including rotary top).
Note on / Note off for Fader touch
CC for fader or rotary move (send and receive)

Seems like rather appropriate, and high resolution CC would be a logical extension.

Hence the Mackie way should not be the (only) basis of your file format, but HR CC should be definable as well.
