So you want to go the Jordan Rudess way. Don't we all? AFAIK this feature isn't implemented on the Alesis boards (funny my old Korg M1 had it but never used it)You could get a Tech 21 Midi Mouse footpedal wich does the job. You will need to set the programs or mixes in the order they will be used.
One other option is this: Set up a split in MIX mode with the programs set in the octaves or keys that that certain programs will be used. Say you will use piano, strings and synth lead. Set the synth to the higher part of the keyboard down to where the strings will be used, and, set the piano to the lower part of the keyboard, adjust pitch octave on all of these. You can make all these combination on diferent MIX locations and just hit one button on the fly, either the UP or the MIX number. Hope this helps
