Program change limit

Hi there, I have a Minilogue XD linked up to my Deluge via Midi. I am using patch number 208 on the XD, I would like to set it as a Program Change on the Deluge but it appears to be limited to 128, I can't get to patches on the XD beyond 128.
Is there a workaround?
The menu options, and their associated MIDI messages, are:
BANK - sent as a MIDI bank select message (CC 0)
SUB - sent as a MIDI sub-bank (sometimes known as bank LSB) message (CC 32)
PGM - sent as a MIDI PGM change message.
MSB and LSB are used to access more than 128 presets via midi, the XD manual should explain how to use them to access each preset.
Just for clarification, I believe BANK=MSB, SUB=LSB, and PGM=PC. Please correct me if I'm wrong, this is new to me.
Also want to note that the Deluge is 1-indexed and that some portions of MIDI implementations may be 0-indexed. I was wondering why I couldn't get my System 8 to sync until I figured this out. This means that where the System 8 is calling for MSB: 85, LSB: 00, PC1-64, what the Deluge wants is Bank: 86, Sub: 1, PGM: 1-64 (the program seems to be 1-indexed on the System 8 as well for whatever reason).
Hope this is useful for future travelers troubleshooting their machines.
Every synth is different and handle program changes different, also shown in this clip https://youtu.be/klD4IBeOWVw?t=472
Thank you all for your advice and comments, very useful
