Project5 – Fast way to select instrument patches from the Track Inspector

In addition to to selecting patches from within the instrument
interface, you can also select patches from the Track Inspector. Find
the "Property Page" for the instrument in question, then click "Select
Bank/Patch".

You’ll then be presented with a menu containing patches. The advantage of this approach is that all the patches are laid out before you making it easier to see all the patches at once in a paticular category.
