Can a progession be 'bound' to more than one octave?


Currently I do the following:

  1. Have Scaler detect the scale I am working in.
  2. Select a scale.
  3. Bind the scale to the keys on my keyboard.
  4. Record a progression using the ‘bound’ chords.
  5. Bounce to MIDI and turn off bind.

I was wondering if when a scale is bound to an octave, can it be spread over multiple octaves? For example, if I first play a Cmin and the second chord I want is an Fmin but I want it the F to play lower not higher, the only way I can see to do it is to copy the chords into a sequence and manually edit the octave of the note to make it play lower. It would be much easier if I could just spread the bound scale across the entire keyboard and play multiple octaves that way.

Any ideas?

That’s what section C is for. Copy scale chords to pattern one. Duplicate than transpose pattern 2 up or down an octave. Do that as many times as needed. Bind all patterns and play.


Thanks a lot. That’s just what I was looking for.

I think @jamieh needs to be appointed as ‘Honorary Director of User Support’.

I’m just thinking about @ed66’s honorarium… (and there are other stars…)

One other point is you can change the octave in edit mode. You can lasso all chords to change them all at once up or down by octave, etc.

Very flattered, but lets not single any one user for honours, although I do agree that @jamieh deserves the gratitude of many members (inlcuding myself). Also you, @panda, have made significant contributions here and deserve thanks.

Ahhhh, I hadn’t intended it to come out like that, and I noted there were many stars. It just struck me the Jamie had had a recent flurry of batting out multiple Mac queries. I salute you for the detailed tutorial guidance, which I always read and learn something from.
