I suppose "alternating" or "next one" assignment would be much the same
thing as even/odd in all practicality.
The beauty of this kind of interleaving is both the mutli-tonality idea and
the overall richness. Because instead of using some kind of detuned patch
or modulation to richen a sound, a perfectly static sound can be used
(increasing the defenition) coupled with a more modulated secondary sound
for the other module (the even notes, letssay).
In a chord, the static patch lends a stoic defintion to the sound but
there's still some motion present from the other module.
In some ways, "next one" assigment might even be better. Because, with
even/odd, each note has a predetermined destination. Middle C (note 60
always an even number, and will always play on that same module. Depending
on key and style, this might be perfect, but just for mixing things up, it
With "next one" altnernating assignment, this now becomes a random function
which is entirely more organic, if that's what you're looking for.
Certainly worth experimenting :-)
