Using Ableton and Akai MPK225 like a looping pedal

I'd like to set up Ableton (Live 9 Std) so that a foot pedal plugged into an MPK225 works like a looper. In other words, Ableton will record as long as I keep the pedal depressed and stop recording when the pedal is released. I'm sure someone here has done this and I'd appreciate any advice on it.

I know that I can map the record and stop buttons in Ableton to the buttons/pads on the Akai, but I'm bowing an upright bass for the recording so I need all of my hands.
