Ambient Pads in Mainstage

Hi guys, I've recently starting using Mainstage to run loops at church mainly because it was a piece of software that I had used briefly in the past so decided on this over Ableton. I know a lot of folk use the excellent Ambient Pads by Karl Verdake with Ableton but I'd be interested to hear folks thoughts on setting this up in Mainstage. Obviously with Ableton you can set them up and assign them to a particular button on a foot controller and fire a particular pad in a particular key at will. Is there a similar way to do this with Mainstage so that you can select which pad to play in whichever key you choose? I know this could be done by setting up a patch for each pad in each key and then importing that patch inbetween each song in your set but I was wondering if there was a way that you could still select a particular ambient pad in a particular key on the fly? Thanks in advance! Douglas
