I got my Casio CDP-100 hooked up to my PC via a MIDI-USB kabel I just bought, and was trying out some sound samples (WAVE- and SFZ-files) with Alchemy Player. I was wondering. What would I need to add effects to an instrument/sample? Maybe shimmer, delay and pitch shifting effects. Is it possible to customize a pedalboard like one for an electric guitar, as an easy way of keeping track of the different effects applied? Is there an option for that kind of flexibility, maybe in combination with the software I'm already using (or other cheap/free software)? I'm not looking for high level sound quality.

If you want to try a few affects applied to your instrument like a rig rack for guitar head over to Native Instruments and download the Guitar Rig player. The software runs for a limited amount of time per session. So every 15(?) minutes you will need to close the program and reopen it and you cannot save anything.

Pick a clean preset to use with your piano.

If you have a DAW you could run GR as a plug-in, delete everything except the components you want to use and it will act like a rack comprised only of those items.

Okay, so I can use regular guitar software for MIDI piano or is that a special thing with Guitar Rig?

There are loads of free VSTs too, though you would need a DAW, or host. Effects are, essentially, just effects, though you more often see them packaged for electric guitars than you do for pianos, since concert pianists, obviously, don't use wah and distortion pedals the same way rock guitarists do.

You could get the Reaper trial, and an Open Source, free effects suite such as SimulAnalog Guitar Suite, and just experiment.
