Dear Barry,
You can do this with Logic, set up a step sequenser in the enviorment.
There are enoug templates for that hanging around so you don't need to lose
your mind on this one.
Maybe some newer synths will respond fast enoug, most won't.
There is also a problem with the synths internal FX.
Even when the synths responce to program change is fast enough most fx need
to "load up" with the new sound.
Your best bet is to use the same fx settings on all programs you are using.
Good luck.
