I'm wondering, how you folks handle your midi-gear in S1. I am using some midi-expanders and synth, and by now I just set it up manually for a song, what starts to be cumbersome and error-prone. I think there probably is a smarter way, to make the DAW send some program change at the beginning of a song, to make sure you have the right sounds loaded in the expanders, the right programs in the FX, and maybe configurations in your midi-controllers.

How are you handling this? Is there any plugin that can handle this (like: store the current config of all connected midi devices and replay it on song start), or is it just two bars in the beginning of a song with manual program and bank changes put in?
thank you
