You can probably get a HP or BP filter type of effect with your large
system, although you may need to make one special patch cable for it.

If you send a signal into a low pass filter and then mix it back with the
original signal with reverse polarity, you can emulate a High Pass Filter.

One cable needs to have its wires crossed to switch the polarity.

Add another LPF on the end of that chain to get a Band Pass Filter.

It works in theory but I've never actually tried it. I just patch into my
Steiner Parker multimode filter to get HPF or BP. But this might be a low
cost solution if you've got all those modules already available.

Let us know the result if you try this.
