Ableton to receive "midi program change" from external sequencer?

Hi everyone,

Very simple: Let's say I have my MPC as master sequencing Ableton drumracks within an instrument rack.

I want to be able to use the "program change" function of my mpc track to select the relevant drumrack within the ableton Instrument rack as I go from sequence 1 to sequence 2 on the mpc.

I already do this with my hardware synth presets.. so would this be possible with Live within Instrument Racks?

Thanks for your help!

    Ableton devices do not accept program change messages I am afraid, unlike VSTs. There is a forum thread with some ideas regarding possible set-ups - the Chain Selector does wonders:
