How can I automatically split the notes of a chord into separate MIDI channels?

Anything about MUSIC but doesn't fit into the forums above.

I'd like to have a VST plugin (or maybe a piece of hardware) that would take polyphonic MIDI notes from my master keyboard, and split those notes monophonically across multiple MIDI channels. For example, if I play three simultaneous notes on my keyboard, I want those three notes isolated and routed to three different MIDI channels. If I play 10 notes, I'd want them routed to 10 different MIDI channels, etc. Naturally, I would be limited to 16-note polyphony with this idea, but that's fine with me. Basically, I want to convert a single channel of polyphonic MIDI information into multiple channels of monophonic MIDI information.

Does such software or hardware exist?

Also, if there's a better forum to ask this question in, please let me know, or feel free to move it to another forum.

I'm involved with photography & audio. For more info, take a look at my site:

This can probably be done in Cubase, by using its Logical Editor and the macro function.
I'm not proficient enought to know exactly how.
The more I hang around at KVR the less music I make.

Not a vst, but PluginGuru Unify can do that (but I don't know if it can send midi out)
