Well a midi switch won't help you much with what you describe... if games send some data to modules or setup in a certain way and you switch modules then the new module will miss that data and you will get wrong playback. What you need IMHO is a sound mixer where you can select which module to hear - they would all be powered on and received all needed data so no playback issues.
What you have state does happen even now and I usually have to power off the module I want to use to correct for odd issues like this. With something like the old MPU-105, you can select which module is actually receiving the signal. I don't normally swap modules in the middle of playing a game. I do currently use a physical speaker selector box to control which of the modules is actually able to be heard. The volume of each of my modules is adjusted individually to essentially be at the same level so a mixer isn't needed in this case.
I do get what you are saying in that even with this device, all the signals go to everything plugged in, and so the devices I don't want to use I just leave powered off and that would work too. But again, I don't like cables coming out the front of the device and would prefer if all the cabling was just on the backside of the device.
Midi Modules: MT-32 (OLD), MT-200, MT-300, MT-90S, MT-90U, SD-20
