Is it possible to use midi to open the next set in a live show?

We use a different Live set for each song in our show. Is there any way to send a midi note or control message to open the next set automatically?

    Only using something like Bome MIDI Translator.

    If you had that tool you could create a macro that could OPEN and then go down to the next file. In cases where you MUST have a strict controlled launch of a spcific song then I would learn the basics of a scripting language (AutoIT for instance) to make some simple scripts that can simply open a spcific file. Then you could call each script (using Bome) from a spcific MIDI note or a dedicated drumpad. That way a single button could open a project without fail.
