Developer Anthony Saunders brings us another AUv3 MIDI app with the release of Polythemus AU. The app lets you take MIDI chords and split off the individual notes to different channels. There are a lot of parameters available to further shape their behavior.
Polythemus AU iTunes Description:Polythemus AUv3 Midi was created for three main uses:
• Creating a polyphonic synth from individual monophonic synths
• Stacking different or similar synths that play alternatively for variation
• Interesting variations in timbre & rhythms by having multiple synths driven with a sequencer (e.g. Quantum)
Polythemus turns your midi chords into mono midi channels so you can allocate polyphonic notes (i.e. chords) into different synth patches.
Load up multiple mono synths to turn them into one polyphonic synth.
Add variation to sequences and arpeggios by varying synth patches slightly or even extremely.
Individual control on number of voices and quick mute/unmute per voice.
Individual scaling of midi volume per voice for balancing
Universal app for iPhone & iPad devices

Polythemus requires an AUv3 host that supports midi effects (like AUM) - the standalone version contains the manual
