Why just leave it at odd/even
There are several other modes you could do
pretty easily, like 1/3, 1/4, and 2/4 for doubling two synths to get
compound tonalities. This would be required, for instance, to simulate the
MiniiMOOG/S.E.M sound from the old MIDIBass box.

Subject: [oberheim] odd/even midi note filtering
Yeah... I hadn't thought about voicing them this way, but that would
be interesting. You could also consistently just number the voices from low
to high and do odd-even that way to ensure a balanced spread.
So, none of the commercial midi processors I've had could do any of
this, but programmatically it would be very simple to implement.
I've been making various projects based on this:
It's absolutely perfect for MIDI filtering/processing and lately
I've been using it to synchronize MIDI clock between my Waldorfs and a
modular synthesizer rig. The kit only cost me about $55 and I had to build
it, but it has been great fun learning all about the Arduino platform and
coming up with new ideas for it.
I realize you may just be musing for the sake of our discussion, but
I might be convinced to write the Arduino sketch for doing the odd/even
processing if anyone is interested. -pc
p.s. search youtube for "Miduino Master Clock" to see what i've been

But the only thing I *wish* I could come up with is an
even/odd note assignment.
Yamaha did this on the TX802 (and maybe a couple other
modules). You could assign the module to respond to all the even number
notes or odd numbered notes. This is a fabulous function.
Unless you play in a lot of diminished or whole tone scales,
It interleaves the notes very nicely. It's the ONLY reason
I keep a couple of Yam modules around and I so wish I could do it with the
Kurzweil does this, too, by any divisor by assigning
multiple modules (1of3, 2of3, 3of3, for instance).
Anyway, the effect is incredible in my books. Like to do it
with my M1000s.
