More Midi Devices than Midi Channels

Hi. What do you all do when you have more Midi Devices than Midi Channels?

I'm working on a build that has several CAE audio controllers, old rack gear, and new midi-able pedals. I'm just over 16 devices and worried that there is bound to be a conflict. Any workarounds?

I didn't see a post on this, but if you know of one and could guide me to solutions, I would be so appreciative!

There are workarounds that depend on the implementation of the MIDI spec on each device. Generally, program change commands require individual channels. Control change commands can be on the same channel(s) as long there are mapped in a way that eliminate conflicts per device.
