AtomSQ encoder update from host in standard midi mode

I want to use the AtomSQ as in standard midi mode. No AbletonLive remote script control surface and no Studio 1 integration.

It's common / standard amongst all the controllers I have owned that an encoder state can be updated by sending a cc message back to the controller.

In midi mode the ATOM SQ does not respond to such messages.  I can receive encoder updates with Push (in midi mode), Novation keyboards, Native Instrument keyboards (in midi mode), MidiFighter Twister etc.  By midi mode I mean not being used as a control surface.

The SQ is clearly capable of this because it does so when used as a control surface in Live.

This request is to ask that the SQ be able to receive midi cc messages to update encoder states when used in midi mode.

Its a great controller with a professional look and feel. A real cut above the cheaper range of controllers on the market. As such I really feel that it should be able to receive encoder updates from a midi host in midi mode.
