A proper key controlled synth needs a note tracking filter. How would I go about doing note tracking with VCV Rack 2 filters? Maybe one of the developers could create a VCV Rack filter with note tracking built in.
They can all do it. Send the note CV to the filter cutoff input.
What’s the way to attenuate it then if you modulate the CV with other things at the same time such as LFO modulation, though? If you have a seperate input for keyboard tracking it simplifies things a lot.
… Just use a mixer to combine LFO and Keytracking-CV and you are fine …
some logic modules with ADD will help there too,
and mixers make it possible to have an envelope,
a LFO and keytracking (…and more …) at the same time modulate the cutoff
I’d love to see a patch with such features. I’ve made some attempts in that direction, but my efforts have always produced inelegant &/or ineffective solutions. My thanks to anyone willing to share something more successful.
No, that is not how one would do it in modular. “Dedicated” input - bad idea. Is the problem that the VCF you are using only has one input, and you don’t like using an external mixer? Just use a filter that has more inputs.
Deleted. linking a rack 1 video might confuse things. Mostly valid for rack 2, and worth a watch.

Jakub used the VCV Unity module in his patch, It’s available in 2.0, but only after tweaking.
VCV 1.x modules were super good. But they were like the only modules that didn’t have enough inputs or attenuverters. Seems the 2.x ones fixed that.
