Been using Scaler today as VST in Ableton has been fine until it started outputting empty midi files on record midi + drag.
It works intermittently if I play a few bars and drag a file, but anything like 16 bars it creates this empty file with around 86,000 bars.
What I tried already.
Shutting down, reopening the als file.
Shut down Live again and set up a new file with Scaler and Kontakt for a drumkit sound.
Went online, found there was an upgrade. Upgraded to 2.09. Set up a new als as before. Confirmed it is 2.09.
Live 10.1.17 (last update was 27 July)
Midi keyboard is Novation launchkey mini - sometimes it loses connection with Live but hasn’t been doing that today.
Recording MIDI in key bind mode to play chords and drag the chords not the trigger notes into another instrument.
Made a loom video of the issue.
You won’t hear music as it’s thru phones but you can see the issue in the video.
Any advice welcome thanks
UPDATE> I just found this thread (it won’t let me put 3 links in this post)
It seems the behaviour is caused when recording in Session Mode using a drum loop that is shorter than the number of bars I’m playing in Scaler. By extending the drum in Session mode to 64 bars I am able to record anything up to that and drag it with the file being as it should be.
Weird I never noticed that before - I’ve only used Scaler in Session view as that’s where I start writing.
Easy work around at least.
OK so making a super long drum loop worked a couple of times but after that it’s still outputting massive empty MIDI files. Very odd.
(I did get one 12 bar section to output correctly after I thought the longer loop solved the issue)
Here is another loom.
One more update - Scaler is randomly outputting the correct chords MIDI file about one in every 3 or 4 attempts, otherwise it’s just massive empty files.
