I was using a regular Windows machine using USBPcap and Wireshark to do a
similar job. I put down some notes on how to capture the raw data in this

Wireshark has a filter for sysex messages which is very useful in analyzing
the captured data.

Apart from that the sysex specification (also reverse engineered ) for the
Arturia Beatstep might be of interest to you:
