Start track by midi input

Post by Matje » Fri Jul 19, 2019 8:46 am

Hello,

After searching in the manual and many websites, I haven't found if it is possible to start a track by a midi input.

In my setup I use Forscore on an ipad. This is an app where you can view and edit music scores. It is also possible to send midi messages from Forscore.
From Forscore I send program change messages to my keyboards when a specific score is opened. This works perfect. In Ableton I have some backing tracks. It would be great if a track could be started by a midi message when a specific score is opened. So , my question is if it is possible to start in Ableton a track by a midi message and if yes, how this is done?

Thanks!
