Default Monitor FX and MIDI

Hi all,

I spend days to find a solution to do what I want, but can't find any clue, so maybe someone can help me here, or just tell me it's not possible

First of all, here is what is my configuration and my need.

I play live and I need to have my click and backtrack samples played, and also MIDI Program Changes sent to my Guitar Amp (Kemper) for each song.
I created a project for each song and opened each project in a separeted tab in Reaper.
I use a marker and a scripted action at each end of song to stop transport and go to next project tab (thus next song) and go to begining of the projet.
I also configured an AKAI LPD8 and Reaper Shortcut with "SWS : switch to project tab #" to go to the desired tab if needed rearrangement during the live performance.

Untill now, everything is great and working fine.

But, between each song I used to launch an audio sample and it should stop when the next song starts. I usualy used an MIDI note signal to launch the desired sample (there is 3 to 4 different samples during our gig) and another MIDI note to a dummy sample to cut the sample.
Before moving to Reaper I used Albeton live and managed this with the integrated Drum Rack and used the Session View with MIDI clip to launch the sample at the end of a song and when starting another song, a MIDI clip to cut the sound (Dummy sample) after some seconds.
On Reaper I didn't find how to do it in the same convenient way.
I choosed Sitala from Decomposer plugin and mounted it in the FX:Monitoring, which works for all tabs, but I didn't find a way to send MIDI to this FX:Monitoring to lanch the samples.

Thanks for reading and for your help.
