Is there an alternative to ProgramChange message to swap layouts?

The Novation XL I have here cannot be configured to send ProgramChanges. Is there an alternative for me to be able to flip layouts or roll dice without touching the computer?

Like a CC or MidiNote?

Perhaps you could  use a TriggeredSoundToGlobalController to receive one of the continuous controllers or MIDI notenumbers that the Novation can send and emit the !ProgramNumber or continous controller that you need.  For example, 128 to roll the dice.

i've got VCS Layouts preset change channel on 2 and VCS program change on 1. But I can't get the VCS to cycle through its layouts at all using this method?
Is the TriggeredSoundToGlobalController in a MIDIVoice set to channel 2?
i'm not sure what you mean. I set a TriggeredSoundToGlobalController to send !ProgramChange as its generated event, with a value of 128 and triggered by the incoming CC number

But it has no way to set a MIDI channel?
ok i got it now I had not read your reply carefully enough. The TSTGC must come after a MIDIVoice - tak!
