Using key follow on the cutoff

So we have this Key Follow parameter here that's going to allow the keyboard, so the notes, like, different octaves ranges of the keyboard to modulate the filter cutoff. So there is a couple of reasons why this is useful. So the first thing, I kind of set these filter positions to something more neutral. When you play an instrument, typically what happens is lower notes tend to be a bit darker and higher notes tend to be brighter, and it's not just the pitch difference that causes that. Sometimes what happens with the synthesizer is that the low notes will sound relatively brighter than higher notes.

So if I am playing this A, if it's lower on the keyboard and I play one that's a couple octave higher, obviously the A that is higher is higher in pitch, but the low one sounds a little bit bright compared to what you would normally expect for an organic instrument. So what key tracking allows, or Key Follow, is for the filter cutoff to adjust depending where you are playing on...
