I would like to divide the Midi keyboard into two parts, so that on one part he would play on one instrument and on the other on the other instrument. How can I do it?

You will need:
- MUX containing:
- Event In (1)
- Note Key/Vel Filter (2) - wire the Event In to both of these in parallel
- Rack (2) - wire one filter out to one rack in
- Audio Out (1) - wire both rack audio outs to the Audio Out

(You could have an Event Out module and wire the rack event outs to that, too - might be useful.)

Choose your split point using the filters - the Min and Max are inclusive so in one you want something like C-1 to B3 and in the other something like C4 (i.e. the keyboard note above B3) to G9.

You can then edit the MUX front panel and put the two rack modules on it, save the preset under your user library and then just add an instrument track and choose the keyboard splitter preset, adding in whatever you want into the two racks.

Unfortunately you can't get at the split point without going into modular view and editing the two filters directly.

I bought Mulab a month ago and I have no practice in MUX programming. I can't find the "Event In" inside AddModule. Please help.

Try this video:

I get a "file is corrupt" trying to stream the video - it plays OK locally in MPC-HC, so I don't know why Firefox doesn't like it. So you may have to download it or view it in another app.
