2021-12-09 (Th) EWC_Panel MIDI in and out

I had two new serial ports, Serial1 and Serial2. The first will use input and output to receive the clock signals and resend those same messages and any note messages. The second serial port will only output drum data, regardless of what comes in. I wrote a function to display any non-zero numbers that came into the serial port. I tested the code by connecting the timing panel and watching "F8" appear on the screen. I modified the code to send those digits to the computer, and I was satisfied that I could parse incoming data. Next, I added to the function by telling it to retransmit any data back out on the same port, but in this case, it was a MIDI output socket on the other side of the device. Since the timer only transmitted one message, I connected a 64-button controller and watched the display change with the different buttons. I attached a general MIDI synthesizer to the output and heard sounds coming through to ensure it passed data correctly. When I played notes quickly, there was a delay due to my controller refreshing the screen and transmitting data to the computer between each byte. I will have to be mindful when deciding what happens during playback.
