Youll have to make your midi keyboard send on two differend midi channels; (Split)
(What midi keyboard are you using?) and set the regarding channels in Live to
only receive notes from a that certain midi channel you want.

I think the incredible dudes from Hermutt lobby made some M4L patch,
that separates the lowest note you play from a chord and
sends it to another channel, so you can have it trigger a bass synth or such.
but i dont remembre the name right now....

If you have 2 midi keyboards, you don't need to go to any lengths to do this. Simply select the different midi inputs on 2 midi strips and arm both tracks - that's it. If you want to split the same keyboard, you may need a little more trickery, but it is easy enough to do.
