I'm thinking of investing in a midi pedalboard so I can trigger keyswitches with my foot while playing a guitar controller. It's a little pricey so I want to make sure it'd be useful.
So I'm asking anyone who cares to answer how they generally approach this. Play it live and memorize the keyswitching as part of the performance, record the complete performance and tweak it later on? Or play the melody with a basic patch, record it and enter the keyswitches by hand later. The first way sounds more musical and intuitive but maybe it'd drive you nuts trying to memorize all those keyswitches for all those instruments. I don't know.
I understand you could do it either way but since I'm relatively new to this kind of idea I'm thinking there may be a gotcha that I hadn't thought about or come across yet.
