Creating Fixed Length Clips in Session Mode Possible?

Is it possible to set the clip length similar to what the push does so that you do not need to click the clip to start recording then click again to stop recording?

For a midi track you can create a clip and set it to a specific length (I haven't found a way to do it with audio clips yet).
Import the attached script into CSS. The reaction titled 'create clip at fixed length' contains the required configuration to do it.
You'll just need to select a button as the listener option and for the first menu in the condition section.
See the attached image for details - including where to set your desired clip length.

An update to the above script (attached to this post).

I've added some extra functionality so now, with a single button press, the following happens:
1. midi clip is a added at currently selected position; 4 bars in length (length can be configured)
2. the clip starts playing/looping immediately
3. Turns on session record button
4. arms the selected track (if it isn't already armed).
5. switches the view to clip detail - so you can see what your recording in.

Literally one click and your recording a 4 bar loop!
