Translation Required RE: MIDI Program Change types

I'm currently using ableton to patch change all midi devices on stage between songs using clips and scenes which was simple and straight forward. I'm looking to add in our playback device (JoeCo BBR), but haven't had much luck. I've contacted the developer who has replied with the following. I'm wondering if someone here could help make sense of it for me and explain how Ableton sends this type of command as I can't see how it relates to the usual PC of Bank/Sub/Patch as I use with everything else..

"I think you just need to send a command like:

0xC0 xx

0x indicates the number is in hexadecimal (base 16)
C0 (through to CF) selects the BBR’s MIDI channel so C0 would select MIDI channel 1
xx is the song number in hex

So sending C0 0b would select song number 011 as the song to load,
C0 11 would select song number 017, etc.
C0 03 would select song number 003..."

Any help would be very much appreciated.
