Program Change automation for Kontakt VST3

After update to new version of Kontakt all my automation for articulation switch became lost (Studio One 5/ Win10).

Reason - all Kontakt instances was changed to VST3. I couldn't find a way to send PC to VST3 version, MIDI automation parameters list is huge and near to unusable - all the parameters are duplicated for all 16 MIDI channels without marking number of channel!

If I delete VST3 version manually, I can load VST2 version again. But VST2 format is no more supported by Steinberg. So if someday I decide to revise my templates, problem can return - how to send Program Change to VST3 version?

    Program changes cannot be sent through host automation I think, you would need to send them from the piano roll. That said I don't know exactly how Cubase handles it. However at least over here in Reaper I can confirm sending program changes to Kontakt VST3 does work - easy to test with MIDI monitor multiscript.

    I've found parameter for VST3 automation that matches PC for Kontakt 6 - this is "Kontakt" (!!??):

    It can be automated, so if I have to use VST3 version, it can be possible to use it in templates.

    You could also use Sound Variations in S1 for this, actually. Probably better than automating that param.
