Hello,

I'm working on a footswitch to send midi machine control messages, i can send all supported MMC to the MPC live.
I'd like to send a command for other options, most of all I'd like to start/stop the sampler and the looper.
Is there any way to do this.
Is there a midi implementation list available?

I've asked this question before. It seems that AKAI is the only company not doing so.
- The common MIDI Machine Control commands are supported - but with some issues as described here:
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=186964 - which affects in a special case the creation of own samples.
