You can definitely do this with the Nord Modular (the Micro Modular as 

You can separate MIDI data coming into the machine as GATE and NOTE. So, 
do what you're looking for, you would run a line from the GATE input to an 
Envelope Generator; an LFO into a "VCA", then the VCA to a filter. When 
hit a key, or otherwise send MIDI note data, the GATE will fire the EG, 
which will open the VCA, which will modulate the filter.

There is also a note detector/splitter module which you can use to set up 
different things to happen on different notes.

I think that you'd have a lot of fun with the machine Doc.

If you want to, the "main" NM list recently moved off of Wizoo. You can

Good luck!
