I think it can be done by sysex,

Easier to program some presets, which the FCB will be able to conjure up 
prog change messages.

you wanna be no. 1 experimenter?

try this,

program your FCB to also send prog change on the button presses.

so the button for "Insert=SUB" also send the prog change for the preset 
..and all the others have prog change for the preset with Quant=OFF

Now, if the FCB1010 sends prog change before noteOn
(and I'm pretty sure it does) you're in with a chance that you get exactly
what you want without any more buttons used up.

...no guarantees though, I don't know if the EDP will
respond as hoped.
