Name/Version: midi on off 1.0
Author: wanginc  
Description: this is such a simple project it may make laugh some people, but i find it so useful in ableton live that i wanted to share it.

I is a simple button to turn on and off the midi signal. It works great on drum samples but also on other stuff.

Imagine you have a midi based drum loop and you want to turn it off and on again really quickly to make a live rearrangement with a controller. If you use the mute button in live it will also cut your samples making sound all the operation really bad.

The other option is to create a midi track link it to the one with the sampler and use the midi track's mute, but it is allot of clicks.
Here you just have to drop the on off before the sampler and here you go, no more samples stopped in the middle of the play back.

You can do whatever you want with it or find ways to improve it you are welcome
