ok so despite my guitar incident, this was the first sunday getting my amp channel switching midi controllable and creating banks for each song with programmed parts on the MC8 vs just tap dancing various sounds out, and holy crap it's a game changer for playing the only EG and leading. A few bugs to work out (like shutting off the two button banking, oops) but man it's so much easier to lead when you just have one button to push. I get that element of the all in one modelers now.
Have you considered connecting your rig to Ableton and letting the song click/tracks change patches for you while you lead? It would take a bit of programming each week, but it might be worth trying if you're leading and want your brain to not have to be thinking about having your effects correct for the next part of a song.
