Ok, so I read about this and am checking it out. I have little actual theory knowledge.
It seems to me like it’s a chord and progression tool, with a giant library of chords and… something.
I’ve watched a few videos that seem to show people getting suggestions for chord progressions and inversions and related things (which I am particularly interested in), and seems to also show users pulling general “melody lines” (motifs?) from drop down lists. Also… a bunch of intstruments.
It also appears that something needs to be composed within Scaler first, then sent/copied/dragged into a DAW.
I understand the draw of having thousands of progressions from artists and so forth - as well as an instrument library - but I’m actually not interested in any of that. What I’m looking for is something that I can use to help discover chord progressions, and possibly melodies.
I’ve begun using Ableton 11 Suite and Bitwig, and don’t need instruments. Would kind of hope a chord tool could be recorded in real-time in a DAW - I think I saw this with Scaler, but can’t find it now.
Last… Am I missing something here? Would Scaler be overkill?
