Controlling pattern selection and start and stop via midi?

I’m trying to figure out how or if it is possible to control selecting patterns and starting and stopping playback via midi, preferably like with some kind of a foot controller. does anyone know how this could be done?

The Model:Samples can be set up in its CONFIG > MIDI menus to respond to:

  • MIDI transport messages (Start, Stop, Continue), and
  • MIDI Program Change messages to select patterns.

You just need a foot controller that offers these features. Many do. There is a lot of discussion of MIDI foot controllers and their capabilities on the forum:
