Chord Duration


Not sure if this is possible, already suggested, or maybe a silly idea. I know there’s a global chord duration but I was wondering if it’s possible to edit that duration per chord when hitting the Play button for a sequence/row of chords.

I’ve been enjoying creating a sequence of chords in the Patterns, and then keybinding other chords I explore within Scaler or playing along with the keyboard to that pattern. While experimenting, sometimes I want to change up the rhythm / spacing between chords right there in the same window (really like the idea of just right clicking on a chord and selecting a different duration for it or something) without having to commit/export to the DAW and modify things there. Maybe I’m just lazy though!

EDIT mode is your friend where you can do all of the above.

As David said – under edit you can do many wondrous things.


In fact, I think this kind of thinking is very good. But how many people do you really use? If you make music, why not adjust to Piano Roll?

I usually use this method to adjust timing and try things before I start committing to the piano roll. Once I get things sort of locked in, I drag and drop to MIDI and go from there.

Thanks for the fast response! I feel like this was an obvious one haha I feel silly for missing it for sure, but I’m glad to hear it’s there! Apologies. Excited to start using the feature and draft chord progressions and ideas within Scaler quickly.

I think the current way is only suitable for playing. However, it is not suitable for music creation. If it is creation, it can be edited in piano roll.

Maybe for you. For me… I’ve created music and never went to piano roll. Other times I have. I use what works for me and the project.

That’s good. I’m still more used to editing in Daw piano roll
