Hello Scaler Family,
I need either tech support from Scaler and or a Studio One user to assist me with this problem. It seems that Ableton and Reaper users are not having this problem, from what I have read. So I need to hear from the people at Scaler and/or from Studio One users that have figured out how to get Scaler to read audio correctly and how to route Scaler so I can trigger Chords “live” through Scaler to my hardware synths like I can with Chorder (Studio One users will be familiar with Chorder).
What I have dones so far:
Like most DAW’s you can setup a hardware synth (Motif, Korg, Juno etc) in Studio One as a Instrument so you can play back midi tracks create by other VSTs. But you can not audition the sounds in the Hardware Synth or play them back like you can when using a VST. This can be done within Studio Ones “Chorder” which is an FX plugin. So you add you hardware instrument, add Chorder (FX), route Chorder to the the hardware instrument and whatever you trigger in Chorder you hear through the hardware. Click record and it records the chords you are trigger through Chorder. Much like the way we use Scaler with software-synths. Now that Scaler is an FX for audio I was hoping to be able to use it the same way.
I am having two problems with Scaler 2. The first is - when setting it up as an FX for audio, it does not read the chords I am playing correctly nor does it read the chords from an audio track correctly. If I play a simple C Major Chord it will read whatever it feels like. Sometimes a GMajor, sometimes a B. If I play a simple C Major scale it wont read it at all. If I add a loop with a simple chord progression it will read all types of strange chords and read them differently every time the audio loops. If I try some Jazz chords … its like Scaler took LCD and goes on a “strange trip” …LOL
The other problem I am having is that I can’t hear the chords being triggered by Saler from my hardware synths at all. I do see the signal. I can hear the internal sounds. But if I turn the internal sounds off, I do not hear anything. Everything is routed correctly because I can see Scaler recognizing the audio signal coming through. I do have the"bind" clicked, but nothing.
I have been trying to get answers to this problem for sometime now to no avail. Scaler: if this cannot be done within Studio One just say so. It is still a great program. I just want to know if it will work or not so I can decide to pay for the upgrade. That is the main feature I am interested in.
Studio One users … if you have figure out a work around to get this to work like Chorder please let me know. For everyone else that has tried to assist me with this on my previous post, thanks. And NO, I am not switching to Reaper or Ableton …LOL
Scaler - email me and I can send you a screen shot or capture a video of how I am using it and send it to you. If we can set up a call that would be nice too.
Much love to everyone and stay safe …
