MIDI selector [idea]

I have this idea for a machine, maybe it exists already (?), or perhaps just an idea at this point.

I use Buzz for live performance and this one thing would make my life so much easier.

What it does:
1) You supply it a single MIDI channel input (for keyboard) or a set of MIDI channels (for multiple keyboards)
e.g. MIDI channel 1 -> MIDI selector
e.g. MIDI channel 1, 2, 3 -> MIDI selector

2) You supply it a list of machine sets (one or more machines each item) you want to control at one time on one channel.
Item 1) mda piano (channel 1), infector (channel 2)
Item 2) infector 2 (channel 1), mausynth (channel 1), infector 3 (channel 2)
Item 3) piano one (channel 1)

3) There would be some easy way to "change presets", which would change the input channel to output on those machine sets.
e.g. I select item 1, and then my keyboard outputs midi to mda piano and my other keyboard outputs to infector.
Then I select item 2 and my keyboard outputs to infector 2 and mausyth, and my other keyboard outputs to infector 3.

I'm not sure to understand what you want but did you try snowglobe's midi manager or channanigans?

I don't think that does what I need it to.

Maybe a picture would explain it better...

Edit: I didn't put any split functionality in it because the split functionality exists elsewhere, e.g. IX Split, Polac VST
