What you describe is called a sampler in the music production world.
Many samplers allow one to load sounds, such as from your effects CD,
and trigger those sounds' playback via received MIDI messages. The
MIDI messages are typically generated by piano-like controller keyboards
but it is possible to generate them based on switch closures. Check out
my MIDI merger/processor/interfacer I call The Urge To Merge at
http://www.gv.net/~mkesti for an example of how one can do this.
