Firmware 1.21 (V3.5)

This version adds support for the Kemper Player KPP and solved the issue of USB-MIDI latency.
1. Press and hold the key0 button while connecting the USB cable to the computer, which can be running either Windows or macOS.
2. The MIDICAPTAIN disk will appear on the computer. For macOS, the first time may require waiting for about 30 seconds.
3. Delete all contents from the disk, including the license directory. For macOS, after deletion, immediately empty the trash and wait for about a minute or more.
4. Download the compressed file from here and unzip it.
5. Copy all files and folders from the unzipped directory, including the license directory.
6. Paste them into the previously emptied MIDICAPTAIN disk. This step may take about 3 to 5 minutes to ensure all contents are copied correctly.
7. Shut down and restart the device as usual.
    Note that the handling of the license folder in the above steps differs from the previous 10-switch version update method.
