There is a combined bank & program change message predefined, but the channel & bank are fixed.  I find it more useful to have one control set to control bank changes, one to control the program changes, then group with a supercontrol.  MDP2 also has controls for these.

In the control property explorer, under the midi tab, message type
- choose bank select for bank control.  This is automatically a 14 bit control, with both LSB and MSB.  If your device only wants MSB or LSB, then use CC 0 for MSB, CC 32h for LSB
- chose program change for the PC message.  This by default is a 7 bit control.

Using named ticks, you want to fill these with synchronized values to select programs in the desired sequence.

Look at the Master's class layout ( tab on bank and program changes for an example that shows how to do this.  Although reading it now, I guess it have been more clear, so reply if you have more questions after reading it.
