Device Overview

Name/Version: 4 Voice Splitter 1.0
Author: stev  
Description: This device allows you to control 4 different monophonic synths with 4 voice polyphony, or 4 different 4 voice synths with 16 voice polyphony, from a single track.

Send this device polyphonic midi and it will split up the voices into 4 different channels. It lets the first channel through and sends the next three to different midi buses. These buses can be received by Ableton's Max Midi Receiver which comes in the Max 7 Pitch and Time Machines Pack.

Right now it only has 2 settings, Mono and Quad mode. In Mono mode it takes 4 note polyphony and splits it into 4 mono midi tracks, in Quad mode it takes 16 note polyphony and splits it into 4 groups with 4 voices each.

Not sure if this device is redundant, but making it was easier than finding it and figuring out what it was called. I didn't want to put too much work into it before knowing if people would find it useful, so let me know if you want me to expand it (different voice configurations, more sends etc). Or if I'm dumb for making a worse version of a classic device that everyone knows. :)

Thank you for this nice tool
it works perfectly with unison big sounding mono synths

here are some ideas to make it even better:
-The first output could be the lowest note of the chord etc
-What about a round robbin sequential output of the 4 voices synced in time : 1/4 1/8 1/16 etc ?


Hmm I cant quite think of a way to successfully do either of those things. I'll give it some thought tho as both ideas sound cool. If you can think of example devices that use similar logic let me know.

Hello Steve
In the analog world there was the Roland MPU-101
it features very interesting and various modes for a
midi in /four cv gate outs interface .
here is the link for the user manual: http://www.synthmanuals.com/manuals/roland/mpu-101/owners_manual/

the different modes are explained on page 18 and following pages.

Be sure i will never sell my MPU-101 butit would be great to find similar features in the Aleton Live world .

ps:
your delay and plyphonic pitcher are fantastic






Wow, thanks. Going to build me a 4-voice "Little Alter Boy"-Voice harmonizer!
