How to emulate a keystroke with a special network data packet?

I'll start from far. There is a mixing console that is connected to the router, the router is connected to a computer (local network) The mixer has its own IP in the local network. This mixing console is essentially a controller for controlling the program in which I work (Studio one).

When you press the buttons on the mixer, a certain data packet is sent to the computer, which is then processed by the program.

Is it possible to add emulation of pressing the TAB key to a specific data packet sent from the mixer?

I think it's about some triggering when the shark receive specific data.

P.S. In programming, I am a complete zero

It might be possible through some reverse engineering. You should first capture the packet(s) sent when you press the button you're trying to emulate so you know what the exact data format is that you need to try to replicate. If you post that capture file somewhere online like Cloudshark, Drive, etc., then someone may be able to help you further.

I don't know. First, a capture file would need to be provided so someone willing to look at the capture file can do so and try to find out how to help you from there, if possible. There are many users on this site, so it literally could be anyone here who might be willing to help you.
