Can I start/stop Sonar Live with a guitar pedal?

    OK, I tried asking this question in the "MIDI" forum, but haven't gotten a clear answer in over a week so I thought I'd try here.

    Is it possible to start/stop a sequencer with my Boss GT-3 guitar fx foot pedal? I'd like to be able to do this for live applications. I know I can start and stop a sequencer with midi, but can a guitar fx pedal control this?

    I've been able to use midi to change fx on other processors and to control soft synths from my keyboard controller, but I feel very limited as to my actual understanding of midi. Can you also recommend a good web site or book that clearly (simply) explains midi and how I can better take advantage of it.

    By the way, I'm using Sonar with a Delta 1010.

    I highly doubt this is possible as the pedal would need to send MTC to be able to do this.

    Most pedals are not made with this type of applicational use so I don't think it will.
