I read in another Fixed thread a request for adding “alternative naming info” for chord detection. The thread being marked Fixed might mean this feature has been added. Forgive me; I don’t know; however, I will proceed as if it has not.
I isolated a Bb7 midi chord in Reaper for detection, and Scaler detected Ab 6 (sus2) b5, which is-
Ab D F Ab Bb. The Bb7 chord in the midi clip is voiced the same as the Ab 6 voicing. Ab D F Ab Bb.
Scaler did a remarkable thing identifying the chord but still falls short because only a Jazz pianist would be able to recognize that quickly as Bb7/Ab first inversion. I’m not a pianist and had to see it to recognize it. I could be overlooking something!
The Scaler rep’s reply was (paraphrase) it is a good idea but might be a distraction for all but the most advanced users.
This feature is much-needed. It could be a valuable learning tool for those who don’t know the concept of chord inversions and horn players like me who know a fair amount of theory.
It could be a window that pops up when a right-click is detected, and then a tooltip notice for less than advanced users. It could have a learn more link.
