Trigger script from midi?

Hey,
Is it possible to trigger a script from a midi event, or externally from another app on the host pc ?
Thanks

A little late with this answer. Hopefully you've discovered this by now.

No, scripts can not be triggered via MIDI.

DMXIS Python scripts do not run in real time.

Thanks Rich for the answer.

Wow I had no idea it's been 4 years since I started with dmxis!

After Dave told me I can't do things like sleep in the dmxis python, I decided to move all my logic outside the application, and just trigger the presets via midi.

Cheers
