Threshold events based on pitch or velocity

Attibution: mdoudoroff

A comparator will only go high when a voltage crosses the threshold you set

If you patch a variable voltage signal such as pitch or velocity to a comparator, you can use the resulting gate to trigger an event, open a VCA, or gate an envelope generator whenenever the input signal is high enough or low enough.


Result: when you play notes that are high enough in pitch (or fast enough in velocity) they will also be passed to the delay. Notes that are too low in pitch (or slow enough in velocity) will not be passed to the delay.
