Wouldn't that qualify as behaving like a momentary
switch? It sends a note on when you press & a note
off when you release?

and do just that, but for example, if you do that with the record message,
the unit resets itself waiting for the note off (thinks it's a long press).
So one must send note on and off with a single string.  And that is not a
switch being used as a momentary.
None of the seven EFC-7 commands needs to be a MIDI momentary switch--all
can be effected with a single string of sysx.  The PC-1600 can do this--be
configured with single sring presses to simulate front panel control.
