 ---Question: On this page …

https://www.autotonic.net/blogs/news/rev_1-8-219-3

… you mention that it's possible to create zones, one for left hand and one for right.  Do you mean that I should create two instances of Autotonic and mute the left/right keys in each, one for each hand?

---Answer: Yes, key splitting is meant to be done by opening 'new instances' (double square icon …


… on the lower right) and then setting up dedicated zones. You do that by enabling the 'mute keys' which can be revealed by either clicking on the 'OUTPUT label' …

… or by clicking onto the 'INPUT label' …

… which then will bring up these mute key zones …

… which can be set active/inactive (can be also click-swiped).


So overall all you have to do is to make sure, to use …
1.) two instances operating on same midi channels (eg, INPUT channel #1, OUTPUT channel #1)
2.) split them into their desired playing zones
3.) set up x/o-Modifier for the chord triggerings

There is also a button called 'sync' …
… which is especially useful when changing parameters to one instance, which you then want to see become updated on the other instance as well (preferably do that on the chord triggering instance, as otherwise your x/o-parameters get overriden).
This Works flawless on Mac, Win has issues: Windows handles incoming MIDI differently than Mac, you can also see what I mean in this forum post here: http://tinyurl.com/y9dot4vj So you'll unfortunately have to use something like MIDI O/X or other dedicated 3rd party MIDI processors to spread/mirror single incoming signals to be seen by multiple applications (which multiple instances are basically). There's not really a direct workaround, as this is something unique to the Windows operating system. So „typically the first app to open locks the driver“ … on Windows. If you can, then also try it with another MIDI driver/interface, if you can, as they recommended that in above's forum post as well.
