A, very, basic, Modular keyboard split

Caustic Song file (optional): 

Don't get too excited. It's a, one side, or the other, thing. The oscillator, on the left, will play up to B3. The one, on the right, will play from C4 up. Don't expect me to explain, in detail, how, because I'm not going to. Basically, it's a poor man's comparator. They're used, amongst other things, by, most, analogue oscillators, to generate square waves. There's a simulation of how that works, on track 7. And, there's a few examples of what you can do with a split. They're, all, variations of the first machine. Feel free to adapt.

here's a similar thing in

here's a similar thing in fewer modules. the knob you need to turn to change the split point is marked.

explanation for those just joining us:
basically what's happening here is i want to run the note cv through a couple saturators so when it gets to a certain value it rails from one side to the other, with a static cv added to the input so i can change at what value that happens. to do that here is i've run the note cv through a bandpass filter, which for mysterious reasons inverts whatever goes through it. the negative note cv is run to a mixer where it's added to the mod cv, which will basically always be at the same value. by changing the amplification of the mod cv i can basically nudge the note cv one direction or the other, changing when it crosses zero and rails the saturators. from the saturators it goes to a crossfader which switches between the two oscillators.

I love it, when that happens

I love it, when that happens :) One, minor, thing. It's not, quite, fully, cross-fading. A, bit, more gain to that, second, saturator output does the do. Pedantry for the sake of one, more, module. But, hey. I'm running with this one. Nitro strikes again :)

I've been doing a bit of filter research. It's amazing, how many designs invert the polarity of a signal. And it's, pretty, much a given, that state variables invert the low and high pass outputs, leaving the band pass the right way round. I'm making a guess that the input is inverted, before anything else happens, in this one. Speculation on my behalf.

Ooh. Back to five units. This

Ooh. Back to five units. This is one, mighty, switch.
