How to divide a sample based on frequencies?

I was hoping you guys could tell me a way to divide a sample into two parts by looking at its frequency map. I use FL Studio, and I guess you could split the sample into two channels, turning down w/e you don't want in each channel using the Parametric EQ. But is there a plug-in you guys know of - ideally with a bar that you can drag up and down a frequency map, and will allow only w/e is on the left or right of it to pass through the mixer?

There are a few samples I wanted to split up this way. I appreciate any thoughts!

you could use a linear phase eq and make your own cross-over.
duplicate your track and on one track put a HPF and on the other put a LPF
use the same corner frequency for each one
be mindful of where you put the cross-over frequency because this method is not a 'perfect' split and may/may not have audible phase issues at the cross-over point (+/- in that area)...

x-noise ? edit: nvm it's not an strict eq per say but can be used as such..

Tried messing around with the settings...

Thanks for the replies though - I appreciate it.

i think i know what you mean, i only use it in my editor not my daw, my work around is to paste a little silence into the file, before the actual sound starts.
