Generating swatches around a specific color

Is there any way to generate a series of swatches around a specific spot color in either Illustrator, InDesign, or CorelDraw?

This happens a lot when I'm trying to match an existing color exactly, and even the most expensive Pantone book doesn't have every color at 1% - 99% screens (or maybe they do but my Pantone budget is under a billion dollars). I'm pretty tired of doing this by hand, and I'd love a way to generate swatches by increments automatically.
I came across this tutorial
, but I don't want a thousand swatches going from 0/0/0/0 to 100/100/100/100; I'm looking for maybe 40 colors that are a variation
of, say, PMS 301C.
