I am doing a project where I have an 8 bar scaler pattern, and I want to repeat it at different bars in my composition, with different instruments and different basic and chordal performances.
For example, I want to repeat the same chord progression on Bar 1, and then again on Bar 8, but with a different Scaler instrument, and different Performance pattern.
So I have Scaler on two different tracks and I am telling the DAW to start one instance of Scaler on Bar 1, and the second instance on Bar 9. I have DAW sync on, and then I press the Space bar to start playing.
This works if I press the Space Bar or hit Play and let it play all the way through. But if I try to stop and start, Scaler no longer plays correctly. sometimes both instances play at once, even though in the DAW they do not overlap. Scaler seems to lose track of where it is if I am not starting at the first bar.
Yes, I know, I could just capture the midi patterns and drag them to the appropriate bar. But I am still experimenting with performance patterns and instruments, so I would like to use the setup I described, if it can be made to work.
Windows 10, Mixcraft 9, latest version. Scaler is working well otherwise.
Thanks for any help with this.
