For this, I use a set of JS plugins that help to translate and connect the MIDI messages from the controller to the plugins they are meant to control. I prefer to avoid the control path altogether, and have "special needs" , so it's maybe more complicated than it needs to be.

The thing is, though, that it would be relatively easy to build a "preset manager" plugin in JS would take a single midi note or program change and translate it to a set of parameter automation actions which is what you originally said you wanted. It would take some thinking to make it "easy" and "user friendly", but I know it could be (maybe has been?) done.
wow, what an interesting experience! Thanks for sharing. BTW you`ve answered another question I could also post, because I`ve just decided to add some relatively cheap midi interface to my home PC to make the mixing process a little bit easier. However fo live gigging I`ll definitely use another footswitch)
Interesting idea to use JS plugins to convert midi commands, yeah, that may be a challenge for me, lol. But I`ll try it, no doubt. Just gonna find those JS...
