Device Overview

Name/Version: AwJe Chord Split 1.0
Author: AwkwardJesus  
Description: Say you play a chord, consisting of the notes C, E and G. Chord Split allows you to send each note to a different MIDI track. Track 1 receives C, Track 2 receives E, Track 3 receives G. What is this good for? 3 example applications:

1) You can let each voice of a chord be played by a different synth, causing for interesting complex textures.
2) Play a melody with overlapping notes for glitchy sounds.
3) Jacob Collier-style voice-chords in combination with a MIDI-capable pitch correction plugin.

Here's how it works:

Chord Split supports up to 8 voice polyphony. Create up to 8 MIDI tracks, each with an instance of Chord Split, and assign each instance a voice number. Arm any of these channels and play a chord. The notes will be split in order they are played. The first note goes to voice 1, play a second note on top and it will go to voice 2, another one on top will be voice 3 and so on.

Chord Split is sender and receiver at once. It doesn't matter which of the tracks you use to play the MIDI into, it will split it in the same way according to the voice number. Even further, you could have a MIDI clip playing on all 8 tracks and they all would distribute the notes to each other, causing for a crazy web of complex textures.

The interface only does 2 things: You can pick what voice this instance represents and it shows you what note it received last.

Enjoy!
Any feedback is gladly appreciated!

Love this! Thanks for sharing. Makes it super easy to get interesting stacked layers.

This is very cool! I would love if there was a wrap-around function, by which notes above the number of chord split devices were redistributed back to those devices. That way, if somebody has three devices but four notes in the chord, the fourth note would still be played.
