LPD8 - Can I get the pads to send a constantly varying signal to use as a mod wheel type controller?

LPD8 - I want to use the pads as a continuous controller pressure pad, like holding your finger on it and varying the pressure to constantly send a signal like a mod wheel.

When I try this it doesn't send a constantly varying pressure signal, it only sends a signal if you hit the pad and then it holds that velocity signal until replaced by another hit.

I've done this with a competing product and it is extremely useful, one of the reasons I bought this pad. Am I missing something?
