Can I use a sustain pedal with launchpad pro?


I've been using my launchpad pro to play drum racks, routing aftertouch and velocity to various parameters (it's really a blast), and now I'm wondering if I can throw a sustain pedal into the mix. The trouble is I don't know how to get the sustain pedal midi to ableton. The launchpad pro has a midi-in, but I'm haveing a hard time finding a pedal that outputs 5-pin midi, or even a quarter-inch to midi converter (do they exist?). I got a sustain pedal to do what I wanted when I plugged it into my midi keyboard and sent my midi input to All Ins. But I'd rather not have to set the midi to All Ins and I'd rather not go through a midi keyboard that I wouldn't otherwise need.


Any ideas?

    Hey, im unsure how to connect a sustain pedal directly into
    The midi input of the launchpad.
    But if you have any midi or regular keyboard with a usb input and sustain pedal input. You can then plug that keyboard into the computer through usb and make sure on live the track you create for the keyboard has the input set to all instruments
    Allowing the keyboards sustain to work on the launchpad.
