How would we achieve a pulse using a MIDI trigger?

I created a cue list.

The first cue brings the fixture to 100% blue.
The 2nd cue follows at zero seconds and fades at .30 seconds.

When I click it, it flashes once and fades out. I assign this to a MIDI note and run it and it works.

Have I gone about this the right way, or is there a different way to do it?

I was thinking that if I had an 8 bar quarter note pulse in Ableton, that I could create a single cue list containing this same cue pattern for the full length of the phrase, then just send a GO trigger for every beat so it steps through the cue list in order.

Or, again, is there a better way to create a single function like “flash that blue light to the beat” button. Thanks guys!
