Automating midi map changes in Ableton


I'm trying to figure out a way to automate changes to the midi mapping of my Midi Fighter over the course of a song in Ableton so that I can have buttons change their midi assignments at specific times in an arrangement automatically. I know that sentence basically said the same thing twice, but here's my project:

I will be setting up a Midi Fighter to be manipulated by patrons in an art gallery so they can dub out their own mix of a series of songs that will play in the Arrangement view of Ableton.  Ideally, I will have the midi mappings automatically change for each song within the Arrangement so that different effects/manipulations can be applied to different songs without the user having to do anything.

I'm hoping there might be an intermediary program that can send a new midi map to Ableton at specific marker points in the arrangement? Maybe Max for Live has the ability to do this?

I am running a MacBook Pro (64 bit) with a Midi Fighter 16-button USB midi controller.  Sound card will likely be an M-Audio Firewire 410, though we might just use the onboard internal sound card of the MacBook Pro.

Thanks for any help!
