Manage Default Preferences with ScalerSettings

Scaler 2.1 is distributed with a new application to manage your settings.

This was originally aimed at users that couldn’t launch Scaler because of OpenGL issues or weren’t able to access the settings menu because of the default resolution.

It proved to be quite useful to change some of the defaults without having to launch the DAW, so we made them all editable, and added a way to reset everything to default.

Opening the ScalerSettings Application:

  • MacOS:
    • Press CMD+Space to open the Spotlight Search and type “ScalerSettings
  • Windows:
    • Press the Windows key to open the search and type “ScalerSettings

The executables are located here:

  • MacOS: /Users/Shared/Plugin Boutique/Scaler2/
  • Windows: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Plugin Boutique\Scaler2\ScalerSettings.exe

This will continue to evolve as we add new features, but feel free to feedback if you think something should be in there as well.

Someone wrote about a popup for a video overview that they couldn’t seem to get out of the way because they couldn’t access the buttons that were off the screen. This post was in regards to not being able to license Scaler.

Perhaps licensing could be added? I know it’s a one-off process that doesn’t need repeating, but it might make things a bit simpler. Definitely something to think over, possibly.

I know that I can arrange the monitors (if you have more than one) and leave windows stranded by simply arranging the monitor x/y locations. Orphan windows that can’t be addressed with a mouse (can’t be moved because can’t reach the window top to drag it, or size too big for the monitor), etc. could possibly be handled here, too?

I don’t know, but it sure does open a wide array of possibilities.
