Please Help me!!! Is this rack posible???Racks masters help!

First of all, sorry abouth my poor english(tried to understan me...please)
List of the Gear:
-Marshall 9005 power amp
-Ada mp1 pre
-roland sde 3000 delay
-roland sde 2000 delay
-digitech isp33 harmonizer
-Dbx stereo gate
-boss flanger
-boss chorus
-ibanez tube screamer
-dunlop wha
-digitech whammy

-I will like to have stereo delays, one for left channel and the other in right channel,and the harmonizer in the left channel. I think that i will need a stereo mixer(like that custom audio electronics have)for do this, yes or not(i`m not sure)?
-For all the effects, i think that i will need a switcher?(like DMC GCX) I like to know that it is posible run the normal effects(Tube screamer,boss chorus,etc) and the others that are in the stereo mixer?For example i will love to have a presets with a tube screamer,stereo delays and a midi channel of the ada,all with one preset.Is this posible???
-The gate, where is the best conection?
-The wah and the whammy, are conected to the GCX too???
-And finaly i think the ground control pedal is for all this.Pleased help me Racks Masters??!!

I dont think you will need a mixer for this, though you might need something like a Rocktron Patchmate to switch the pedals in and out via midi.

ADA mp-1 stereo in to the gate. From there run to the pitch shifter in stereo (if memory serves, it has stereo in and out). Run each side of the pitch shifter to a separate delay, and then run these directly to each side of your power amp.

Keep your Whammy and your Wah on the floor and you can use the patchmate (or whatever else) to bypass or activate your pedals.

If the pitch shifter isnt stereo in/out you can either run that in the FX loop of the mp-1 and then run directly from the gates to the delays, or just run it on one side of the stereo signal. Im not sure if it would sound better before or after the gate, but I generally like to gate my raw signal (and usually I will run the gate BEFORE I hit the preamp in which case you wouldnt need a stereo gate).

Hope this isnt confusing
