Change presets on external MIDI device?



I use my MFC purely as a MIDI controller to control a Line 6 Helix and an Eventide H9. I'd like to use the switches on the top 2 rows (with the colored labels) to change between presets on the H9. The other switches are IA switches. I use the up/down buttons on the right to change presets on the Helix. How can I get the top two rows to switch between presets on the H9, have the LED for that preset light up, and turn the LED for all of the other H9 presets off?

Note (may not matter at all): On the Helix I use 5 presets exclusively (Acoustic, Clean, Crunch, Heavy, and Solo) and have the MFC set to loop through these using the up/down buttons and don't want to add more Helix presets.


Found the answer after reading through the Axe-Edit manual (imagine that!). Unfortunately you can't set an arbitrary number of switches to behave in this manner but you can do up to two sets of 5. Heres how to do it for any that need this feature.
