Paraphonic Setup?

How do you set up Hermod if you want to play paraphonically? For example, three VCOs with individual pitch going though one VCA with one envelop generator?

i usually do this way:
-set up a track as polyphonic 3 voices
-send the 3 gates to a mixer that goes to the envelope that opens the vca
-send the 3 vco to a mixer that goes to the vca

you might wanna play around with the allocating option in the midi fx to your liking. also there might be other better ways to do it that i’m unaware of

This is what I am doing. The Problem is: it only works if you play a chord with three notes all the time. if you play one note, one vco will follow, but the other two will maintain their pitch. Paraphonic for me means: if you play one note -> all VCO get the same pitch (unisono), if you play two different notes -> two VCO get two different pitches, the third one gets one of the pitches played, if you play three different pitches -> each VCO get a different pitch, if you play four different notes -> same as before, but forth pitch gets ignored. And so on.

Yes! This needs to ba cared for… just adding a HI and LOW parameter to the Allocator Midi FX would allow for setups similar to classic paraphonic capabilities like Maxikorg 800DV, Rolandh SH7 and more recent things like Moog Sub(sequent)37 etc… should be a really simple piece of code to write I would imagine?
