So my current music setup is me playing guitar and singing and my friend on bass, all over Ableton programmed MIDI beats and synths. Now we want to take this setup live, which would mean controlling Ableton through a pedal. I was thinking using something like the Behringer FCB1010 hooked up via something like the Alesis AudioLink MIDI-to-USB cable from the pedal's MIDI out to my laptop's USB port. Then I'd configure it to launch Ableton clips from the pedal switches.

So, does this makes sense and would it work?
