The MIDI capture is a potentially amazing feature hidden in plain sight in the bottom right corner of Scaler - a small bit of work could really turn it into an incredibly powerful feature.
I use Bitwig as my primary daw, and one of the features I miss most about FL and Ableton is the MIDI logging
Those daws are just constantly recording MIDI on a timer, so at any time if you play some notes you want to keep but forgot to record first, you can just go and dump the MIDI log onto a new MIDI pattern, and thereby never lose the idea.
The MIDI capture in Scaler could totally perform this same function in daws that do not natively have the MIDI logging feature, such as Bitwig, Scaler just needs a few tweaks to work this way smoothly.
Need to be able to set a timer for the MIDI capture, so that it only captures midi going back a set duration, and doesnt end up hours long. Being able to choose that duration, last 10 minutes, last 30 minutes, last hour, etc, would be super helpful.
Also would be really helpful to be able to assign launchkeys / MIDI CC / modulators to the Capture button, that way I could start capture with a simple button press without having to open up Scaler. Would be cool to be able to save multiple captures within Scaler as well, but not strictly needed.
Then I could make a template for Bitwig that just has Scaler on a send track, capturing MIDI from all channels at all times
This feature would be huge for me, would open up an entirely new area of usefulness for Scaler and I think would be very popular for anyone using a daw that doesn’t have a native MIDI logging feature!
