Heres's what I've done, and here's what I want to achieve (MIDI Triggers)

I can easily use Ableton live to send MIDI triggers to cue lists.

I created a cue list with two cues. One turns a light on, the 2nd fades it out.

Ableton live triggers the cue list on every beat.

This seems inefficient. I could create a chase, but I can’t figure out how to apply different fade values to each step of the chase.

Is there a more efficient way to pulse a light along to a beat from a song in Ableton Live (or any other DAW for that matter?)
