This a midi controller I have put together from parts from a e-keys usb midi keyboard. I took an e-key midi usb keyboard, took the PCB out and used it, soldered wires to it (to key contacts) that are connected to buttons. So basically when a button is pushed a NOTE midi signal is sent to the computer as if a key on the e-keys keyboard were being pusher. I use these notes to assign them to different functions/buttons in Ableton Live using the MIDI MAP function in Live. I've designed this midi controller so it would look as much as possible as the mixer in Ableton Live. Watch my other video where I use it to control parameters in Ableton Live.

Do a search for "Yamaha MDF2 Data Filer/Midi File Player"
The MDF2 is able to receive, store, and re-transmit MIDI System Exclusive data from nearly any MIDI instrument with bulk data transmission capability, including devices made by manufacturers other than Yamaha. The MDF2 can also read and transmit bulk data files created by the Yamaha QX3 sequencer in that device's MDR mode. It has an interface very much like a tape player with play/stop/pause & record buttons + many more features.
The MDF2 is capable of recording sequence data to disk, and playing back this data in real time. It can also play back data files written by other MIDI devices using Standard MIDI File format 0, as well as ESEQ sequence files created by the Yamaha SY99, SY77, or QX3. Other convenient playback functions al low you to play a program of up to 99 sequence data files in a specified order, and to play back files repeatedly in an endless loop.
Ample data storage capacity
The MDF2 can store a total of 112 files—including as many as 99 bulk or sequence files—on each 2DD floppy disk. If necessary, a single bulk or sequence data file can occupy the disk's total capacity of roughly 600 kilobytes of data. In sequencer mode, this corresponds to approximately 80,000 notes' worth of sequence data.
Since the MDF2 can be powered by batteries as well as by an optional AC adapter, you can use it anywhere, anytime. Six "AA" size batteries will give you approximately four hours of continuous operation
