Keybind channel to specific hotkey? [Cubase 5]

Is there an option to keybind channels to a specific hotkey in Cubase 5?
For example, “Channel 2” is selected when I press “2”. I searched for the option in the keybinding menu but could not find any answers.

Even better, I used a AKAI LPD8 to change sounds in Omnisphere Live Mode. I “midi learned” a note to a specific sound, if there is an option to keybind a channel to a pad on the AKAI it would be great.
