That sounds like a fun project. The easy part would be chaining together AU and VST effects. The hard part will be operating the mouse and keyboard with your foot ;)

I would note that something like this would be a nice combination with a program that took keyboard commands to turn effects on and off. That leads to the interesting part, a program that can do that without the mouse. There must be something...

after several hours of research, I've found the guitar rig 2 and several products + pro tools from m-audio.

i like the guitar rig alot, but i couldn't use it if i wanted to record piano or vocals. m-audio, on the other hand, has several nice products for recording, but it doesn't look like they would work well in a live situation...

:confused:

Yeah, and all that HW & SW looks pretty heavy for what you want to accomplish too :/ I guess there's a market in there for someone!
