Do you ever click within the CoF while previewing chords to find sequences of interest? When you do find something you like, is it ever a challenge to remember the pattern you just clicked through so you can build that sequence in an empty pattern slot. Not a huge lift by any means, but what if there was a little easier way? This is where midi capture and chord detect comes into play.
- Open a panel with the CoF UI (Chord or Mod)
- Turn on midi capture
- Click within the circle looking for patterns of interest
- When you stumble on something you like, immediately hit any key on your midi keyboard to mark that sequence.
- Keep exploring, tapping a key every time you click through a pattern you might like to recall
- When you are done, stop midi capture
- Drag the midi capture outside the Scaler UI (without dropping) and then back onto Scaler and then drop.
- Scaler will now do a detect on your midi capture and you’ll have all your chords and single notes in section A
- Any place you see a single note, you know that the chords immediately prior to that note were a sequence that got your attention. You can now send those chords to a pattern. If you are consistent with using 8 steps in your sequence, you can quickly populate an entire pad of patterns in seconds.
