I mean any MIDI controller keyboard, in my case the Arturia KeyLab 61 MK II.
It provides templates for the main DAWs, but standard MCU/HUI templates as well.
Additional it offers a pure MIDI mode where each button, fader and knob can be midi-learned to whatever you want, except keyboard commands or shortcuts
Here is the problem, ALK2 mainly seem to depend on computer keyboard shortcuts and/or trackpad input.
Live looping is not my primary intent, maybe some elements would be added to a performance.
From what I´ve seen, ALK 2 could become a good option to provide pre-produced backing tracks and loops.
Ableton Live is just too clunky and over-loaded with features, you don´t need or even want during a gig.
Just prepare a gig (setlist) with the song structures at home, press play on the keyboard to start playback, add some live played synth plugins, guitars and vocals and maybe adding some looping stuff.
That´s what I´m looking for.
The tutorial video where you show the options to jump to the next song and pause the playback until you trigger the playback again, is exactly what I´m looking for.
It would be perfect, if you could use the transport section (Fast Forward, Rewind, Stop, Play/Pause, Record and Loop) of a controller keyboard for this.
This is just overkill to do with Ableton Live.
