How to achieve this strange monophonic behaviour?

Hi folks,

I’m trying to find a way to trigger a VSTi in the following manner:

I play a note (C3) and hold it.
Then i play another note: D3 (while still holding C3).
When i play D3, C3 cuts off. So this is a typical monophonic behaviour.
But, and this is the tricky part, when i release D3, C3 is triggered again.

So just to be clear, i don’t re-press C3. I’ve been holding it all the time, and it was the act of releasing D3, that triggered C3 again.

I should also mention, i need this for triggering an arpegiattor, so it actually needs to be external to any VSTi.

Any ideas how i could achieve this? A midi plugin? Or the PLE might help? Or a midi insert? I’m running Cubase 9.

Thanks! …I.R.

Piz midi plugin midiPolyphony do that.

It has a retrigger feature to select, as notes are released.

It’s VSTi itself, so need to be chained with instrument.

Many many many thanks dude, that got it working!

Like you said, re-trigger on, and both high and low channels need to be set to 1.

In five minutes i already came up with some sounds that i couldn’t achieve any other way, check it out (this is just a quick sketch to test it):

You’re welcome. :slight_smile:

That sounds really cool.

This incredible set of plugins from Piz with a wrapper for Cubase midi inserts, so you use them with same ease in Cubase midi tracks - what a boost.
