    Is there anyway to externally hit Play/Pause in the USB Audio Player?
    Preferable via Custom Control, but also MIDI, Companion (StreamDeck) or any kind of IP Remote.

    If not, I’d like to request that!
    Would be perfect for letting a third party trigger a simple announcements or chimes.

    The following is the midi command format for transport control

    MMC (Transport Control)
    SysEx message
    SS = Scene number within bank = 00 to 7F Bank = Bank of scenes
    (refer to table)
    Bank 1 – Scene 1 to 128 Bank 2 – Scene 129 to 256 Bank 3 – Scene 257 to 384 Bank 4 – Scene 385 to 500
    Select bank
    BN, 00, Bank,
    Bank = 00 Bank = 01 Bank = 02 Bank = 03 Recall Scene CN, SS
    F0, 7F, 7F, 06, TC, F7 Where TC transport control is:

    01 = Stop
    02 = Play
    04 = Fast Forward
    05 = Rewind
    06 = Record
    09 = Pause

    I have not got CC info with me, so am not sure about that.

    Having looked at CC editor, there is no direct way to control the playback. But you can create a button to send custom midi command using the above protocol.

    The transport buttons are available in the Avantis Director software as well. I haven’t tested it to be sure you can control the USB player this way, but I have to assume it will.

    I think you can use chataigne from ben kuper to send IP order then play music
