I am doing a musical for school, in which I will be playing on a keyboard, which will be connected by a MIDI-USB to my laptop, which will then apply a range of sound effects (synthesisers, electric pianos, organs, etc.) and put it out to an amp.
The musical contains sections where there is one sound effect in the right hand, and one in the left. It also contains parts where I need to switch quickly between sounds (which I would use a foot pedal for)
What program would suit me best?
I have a Windows computer, and am looking for an alternative to MainStage.
