Change Individual Notes in a Performance?


I should know this but I don’t: Is it possible to change individual notes in a performance - riffs, melodies, etc. - within Scaler 2, without having to drag the midi into my DAW? If not, is something more basic possible - changing the octave of one note in a performance, or even a chord?

Here’s my specific use-case: I’ve got a progression I like. I’ve got it performing differently on different tracks. I’ve got a bass performance on one track I like, but one note falls below the useable scale. I want that move that one note - not the entire chord-based single-note measure - up an octave. I can’t remember if or how I can do that without using my DAW to rewrite the line.

At the moment there is no way to do that without committing to DAW recorded MIDI or putting a MIDI note mapping device like Cubase and some other DAWs have available, between Scaler and the output instrument and give it a specific instruction. Looks like you are using it on iOS so I think the mapping of MIDI notes may be limited there. As much as I like my iPad for many things I don’t like it much for music production.
In any event, sometime late this year Scaler 3 may come into being. We don’t know all it will bring but I know the Devs are working hard to revamp many workflow issues.

Is this what you’re after?

This might work. I’ll try it later today. Stay tuned.

What you are suggesting changes the notes in a chord. I thought to OP was asking about changing notes in a performance (see below). Is that not what he was asking? If I didn’t understand I apologize.

Thanks to you both. In fact, I was asking about both. The ideal would be to be able to adjust notes in a performance. But since performances are built on chords and chord movement, I thought a second-best option would be to adjust those. That was the solution I was looking for a reminder on. But I have yet to test it out regarding my performance constraints. Stay tuned!
