Scaler 2.7; Logic Pro 10.7.5; Macbook Pro (12.6); Novation Launchkey (latest Script Installer)
Problem: When opening Scaler on a new track and attempting to record/capture/detect any input from my Launchkey Keyboard Controller, nothing happens. Yet I can hear audio perfectly on that track before adding Scaler.
I know the audio ‘In’ is setup correctly because the Audio Level Meter inside Scaler is moving perfectly (matches key velocity), yet no notes/chords are detected by Scaler when using even the simplest Logic Sounds (‘Software Instruments’) from Logic’s Sound Library; solidly hitting/pressing one key at a time.
Without changing tracks, sometimes changing Logic’s Software Instrument for that track, THEN going back to the originally selected Software Instrument, will cause Scaler to suddenly work…but only for a short time before cutting out again. Same thing happens when trying to ‘Detect’ the audio/sound previously recorded on that same track…during playback of the track’s clear/simple audio, Scaler won’t detect even the simplest notes. Sometimes removing Scaler from a track, then re-adding it, causes it to work for a brief moment.
Also, sometimes when adding Scaler to a track, the audio for that track cuts out completely. Creating a NEW track sometimes causes Scaler to then work properly…but again, not for long.
The fact that re-adding Scaler back to a track, changing the track’s ‘Software Instrument’, or creating a new track – changing no (zero) inputs/outputs or Logic settings – causes Scaler to suddenly work/function (on occasion) would suggest my settings are correct.
Disconnecting my keyboard controller doesn’t seem to help either. I get the same poor results using Logic’s ‘Musical Typing’ (Mac’s internal keypad). Hitting keypad notes with Scaler Meter Level operating (seeing the input), but no notes are detected/populated by Scaler.
I have 2 Macbook Pros and the issue can be replicated on both. No other Apple plug-in has this issue. Scaler is the ONLY 3rd Party plug-in I own.
I have re-installed Logic Pro, Logic Pro Sounds, and Scaler, all to no avail.
I’ve also read the recent thread where folks are claiming Scaler WITH Logic is ‘buggy’. See here…
