Oh, absolutely. I misunderstood what you meant in the previous post.

In fact most of the songs I make for shows have a backing track I've pre-rendered (and/or run to a click) and rely heavily on automation. So I made Song switcher with that usecase in mind. However, since I don't usually leave the backstage, a screen/mouse/(computer) keyboard is perfectly fine with me.

I'll have a go at adding an "Activate song by CC value" action next week. I agree that could be very useful for some and should be easy to make as explained above.
