Feature suggestion: alternate method for (MIDI) chord detection.
Arpeggio style note MIDI input in combination with sustain pedal
I would like to suggest an alternative method of MIDI input, in which successive or arpeggiated notes, or with the help of a sustain pedal, could be detected by Scaler as a complete chord, not divided into multiple slots.
Explanation: Please, check the video.
The Scaler 2 MIDI detection mode is rich in possibilities to explore the universe of scales and chords. Play one note or various at same time, and Scaler will create one slot for each note/chord hit. However in this default Scaler MIDI detection mode is necessary to play all the notes simultaneously, which is not well suited for arpeggiated notes sent from a MIDI keyboard controller or strumming from MIDI guitar, since the succession of notes will be detected by Scaler separately creating new chord slots for each note.
The only workaround so far is to record the chords previously in DAW and edit the notes succession at the same start point, or select/delete all the previous slots before the last which would retain all notes played. Not saver time.
This kind of “latch” MIDI detection mode would allows to play notes in succession/arpeggio and/or add notes/intervals on the fly beyond of hands extension range until finish building the chord. Also it would also be possible to create multiple chord blocks in a single capture in Scaler.
Playing and building chords on a keyboard by playing the notes in cascade or with arpeggios is a way of playing as natural as playing all the notes simultaneously, only in the latter way you cannot build open or long chords without get a bunch of single note or cumulative building chords. Of course that can be done sooner or later using DAW or Scaler’s editing tools, which is great, but being able to do it at start detection would also be a great feature for piano or guitar players.
