Here for the gear

Hi, I have been interested in a small software/hardware thing to convert akainet protocol commands in to useable midi commands for a long time, but lack of knowledge/time/intelligence etc has stopped me progressing much. I have a variety of akai control surfaces (DL1500 era) that I would love to repurpose as I hate the waste of all that previous effort by akai engineers.
A few years ago I got as far as installing bnc network cards in a pc and using a port sniffer to get a lot of information on what the control buttons do output, but never had the knowledge to write any software to capture it and convert it to something useful to the modern world.
What were you hoping to achieve, and did you get anywhere?
Thanks James
