Hi Sangh,

you can use Midi Translator (MT) for this. After installation (with Hubi's loopback or MidiYoke).

1. Select the MIDI device of the foot-pedal as MIDI IN in MT. Select the 1st virtual port as MIDI OUT (and the same virtual port as MIDI IN in Ableton Live). Choose Options|MIDI Thru (so that the MIDI signals are routed to Ableton, if necessary).

2. Create a new Translator.

3. Edit the Translator:
Choose MIDI as incoming action. Check Capture MIDI and press the foot pedal down (not up). You should see a MIDI message appear in the input field (like B0 04 7F). Uncheck capture, and release the foot pedal.
As Outgoing Action, choose keystroke. Click in that input field, and press Ctrl+Z. You should see Ctrl(Z) in the field.

Now switch to Ableton and press the foot switch: it should do Undo...

Hope it works!
