Using midi controller to toggle between/focus on tracks

Hi Folks

I'm using Cakewalk DAW. I'm wondering how I would go about using my midi controller (Alesis V49) to toggle between VST tracks. Basically, I want to play live with just my midi keyboard and toggle between instruments without using my mouse :P.

FYI - I know how to set up act control surfaces and toggle between surfaces, but the focus always remains on whatever track I've selected with cursor, therefor I'm always playing that instument.

Hi. Perhaps use two of the buttons to map to next/previous track in CbB (Cakewalk by BandLab).
All the best.

I tried that - it toggles the map to prev/next track, but I can only play whatever track I've selected with the mouse.
