Help! Building a switch out of Maths and Pico Logic

Hi!
I had an idea for a patch where i would need a switch to seperate every second impulse in a sequence of gates. (the gates are coming from notes,not from a linear clock or else)

As i don't have a simple switch module i was thinking if i could get something out of my pico and/or maths. the pico has two seperate sections of boolean logic with 6 common types (OR/AND/XOR/NOR/NAND/NXOR).

How could i possibly patch something like a switch out of this? :despair:

Any particular reason you want to use these two modules? What else do you have?

Those are the only two capable of logic. Maybe voltage block could do the job aswell when clocked by the gates and set to a 2step sequence but i didn't want to sacrifice it. Then there is the abstract data ade 32 and zadar. the rest is filters, oscs, vcas etc..

VCAs can mimic AND gates. Mixers can mimic OR gates

Personally, I would set one channel of the Pico Logic as divide by 2 and the other as a NOT. Mult the divide by 2 out and feed it into the NOT. Mult whatever gate you are using, feed it into the divide by 2 on the Pico Logic, and into two separate VCAs. Have the divide by 2 control one VCA and have the NOT control the other VCA. I still don't know what you have so no idea if that helps you.
