that's perfectly acceptable to me...

the Studio 5 can do this and a lot more.  You can make complex
switching trees for routing, each node being a multiway decision.

You can create virtual instruments and assign a single real instrument
coming in to a complex set of MIDI instruments depending on all
sorts of things, velocity, note number, etc.

shame, shame it never lived up to its potential.
