Device that restrics MIDI note range?

Ok here's the problem:

I have a Roland keyboard that is used as a basic piano patch, with the stereo out from the keyboard used.

I'm wanting to add a lower "sub" bass to the patch using a DSI MoPho receiving the MIDI In from the keyboard.

Everything would be great if I could somehow restrict the range of the incoming MIDI, so only low notes were sent to the MoPho, with low note priority.

The effect would be that the low notes would have a thunderous sub bass added, but piano runs or chords using the right hand would not accidentally trigger high synth bass notes from the MoPho.

This is for a live show, so computers are out of the question.
Also - programming the Roland as a "split" patch with a bass patch is out of the question...the MoPho would be much preferred sound-wise.

Is there a small device that anyone knows about that goes between the keyboard and MoPho, that can be used to select the range of outgoing MIDI notes (and perhaps other MIDI parameters).

I figured this was the place to ask...any other creative solutions are welcome!

If your Roland is capable of simultaneous split/layer you could set the layer channel to only play the internal piano on MIDI channel 1 and the split channel to play external MIDI channel 2 with a cut off point of where you want the bass to quit - no output assigned to the other half of the split.
