Is there a way to deactivate the spacebar? I use a music program live and if I accidentally knock the spacebar the whole program stops.

There's no one that i can change this within the program unfortunately, I was hoping someone might know a workaround.

If there isn't one I'm just going to have to rip the spacebar out!

Perhaps, I'm assuming if you're live you're using a laptop, bring an external keyboard that you modified to disable the space bar from pressing and operate the computer from that, so you don't ruin you're keyboard space bar for everyday use!

Settings wise I highly doubt there's a way to disable it.
