Program Change

I have been using old rack synths and samplers onstage. I load programs with a rocktron midi mate that allows me to call up specific sounds for certain songs. I now want to switch to a lap top using Ableton with a Soft Step board. I'm wondering if I can activate certain synth sound and samples with a program change. I know how to midi map an on/off switch on a channel, but that only allows me to set up on song per foot pedal button, which is only 10 songs (0-9). I need like 60, and on my old set up I had 1-99, plenty of room, any help would be awsome. Thanks!

    Try reading about program changes in the manual, or check some youtube videos about this. I use it on Maschine and on several synths, so i guess it should work for your synth too.
