API to turn on a remote "RECORDING" light

Hi. I recently switched from ProTools to Studio One. For ProTools, we created a "RECORDING" light that turns on and off when ProTools goes into and out of recording mode. We want to move this to Studio One. Can you provide an API (REST is best, but a callback would work) that reports when StudioOne is in recording mode? I don't see a way to access this through the "pslextensions" APIs.

I know it's not exactly what you're asking, but Punchlight make devices that work with several DAWs including PT & S1. I have one and it works great! Uses the HUI or Mackie protocol to intercept the transport controls.

This would be part of a larger API feature; OSC (either UDP or TCP) is a common basis for DAW APIs. Currently, the most-viewed, highest-voted feature request for OSC in Studio One is here:

There is also a feature request for general REST + OSC support here.
