How do you send correct bank select messages to an external instrument such as Nord Drum?

I'd like to switch between the banks in my Nord Drum. To do this, you have to send the LSB value first and then the MSB value (in accordance with Nord Drum manual). You can then use the program change command to set the desired program. I would use MIDIOutputEventInBytes to perform such a program change using Kyma. In view of the fact that the Nord Drum only receives program change commands on MIDI channel 10, I would enter the following in hexadecimal:
0xB9 0x20 0x00
0xB9 0x00 !Bank
0xC9 !Number
Am I right when LSB is always 0 and the Nord Drum has only 8 banks?
Thanks Knut

I have found a solution that works now. I only took down the 20 (LSB). This is now the correct form:
0xB9 0x00 0x00
0xB9 0x20 !Bank
0xC9 !ProgNumber
It is strange that here MSB comes first and not LSB. This differs from what is written in the Nord Drum manual.
