one way is sysex control of individual parameters. If your pedal can't do 
that it's lame, get a real pedal. sysex is the most flexible approach.

2nd way is using the new presets feature with a different setting in each 
one, then use midi program change commands to change it on the fly.

3rd is what you have already, use midi to virtually press the front panel 
buttons to edit a parameter. Kind of awkward, but you can sequence the 
presses to go quickly.
