Filter tracking in alternate tunings

Filter tracking in alternate tunings

Is it possible to have the filter cutoff track an alternate tuning? If the Key Amount is set to 64, then if two adjacent keys are played, the filter cutoff tracks by a semitone. If an alternate tuning is selected, then if two adjacent keys are played, the filter still only will track by a semitone.

What this means is that when we turn off the oscillators and set the filter to self oscillate, we are unable to make use of the alternate tunings - this type of patch is basically stuck in 12 tone equal temperament (or 24 tone TET if you set the key tracking to 32). Also, if the oscillators are being used on an alternate tuning, then when the resonance is cranked there is inescapable dissonance as the filter is not tracking the oscillators.

I'd love to be able to make use of the soft vibey sounds of a self-oscillating filter in alternate tunings!
