Default Mapping a footswitch to punch in and out?

Does anyone know a way to punch in and out recording using midi mapping and a momentary foot switch?

I have a Behringer X-Touch One which has a 1/4" foot switch jack. With a momentary foot switch all it does presently is start and stop playback in Pro Tools 12 2018.

Behringer says that Midi Channels PLAY is CC 117 and Record is CC 118 in Pro Tools. How do I go about putting those commands into Pro Tools? I'm very much a novice when it comes to midi and how to make it work?!?!

Help please - Somebody!!

Default Re: Mapping a footswitch to punch in and out?

I think its a setting under Hardware or Playback Engine(not a midi setting). I use a Presonus Faderport with footswitch and it works fine. Only requirement there is the SHIFT button must be lit(otherwise, it does Start/Stop). Yu might also see if the X-Touch One has a SHIFT key(or similar) that may toggle like the faderport
