I don't think so.
From the manual:
2.10. DAW Command Center
The output of the DAW Command Center can be toggled between MCU and HUI protocols
within the MCC.

But

According to the manual the pads and the sustain pedal seems to be able to send MMC Start, Stop and Record, but i don't know if that's the same. I suggest you contact Arturia sale or support if needed.

From the manual:
3.3.5. Pad MMC
This simple option lets you use any of KeyLab Essential’s pads as an MMC command button.
• MMC: Choose between the 3 MMC options available for the pads: Start, Stop, and Record.

Thanks for the reply LBH. Appreciate it, and I think you're right. I should have believed the manual! And I see in the manual about toggling between MCU and HUI protocols. This leads me to my real question:  :)

I'm interested in getting a KeyLab Essential to work with Apple MainStage. I don't want to use the KLE transport buttons for their intended purpose. Rather, I want to MIDI learn the buttons in MainStage so I can map them in MainStage to other functions. So the question is, can MainStage or Logic MIDI learn KLE MCU commands?

If anyone could try this in MS or Logic I'd be grateful.

Hi,

Unfortunately the transport buttons can not be mapped. They are only used to send MCU/HUI messages. I already logged a feature request about this subject but there is no Firmware update planned at the moment.

Regards,

Matthieu

Thanks, Matt. Yes, allowing the 6 transport buttons to send cc's or fixed MMC commands would be a great improvement, and make KLE even more competitive.
