Export State vs Saving Chords Sets

Just to clarify the difference between Exporting the State with Saving the Chord Set.

Exporting the State

outputs an XML file that contains all the settings that you have set up for that instance of Scaler, including any performances that you have selected either as a global setting or in the Performance Playback settings on the Edit page.

Saving the Chord Set

simply saves the pattern(s) of blocks. It does not save any other settings, so any Performance settings will not be saved.

But if Save Full Session is selected when Saving

then Performances are saved.

Good post, it’s easy to get those two mixed up…
