Scaler’s big selection of different expressions is absolutely genius.
It’s a great way to show the user how many options there really are with regard to rhythms and riffs etc.
But Expressions’ Achilles heel is that almost every Expression has a distinctly classical feel, making almost all of them unusable for modern pop music composition.
Listening back when I’ve tried to put various Expressions into my modern pop compositions, the feeling is “Why is there a grandpa music /classical riff here?”
Someone who knows pop riffs could probably use these Expressions and then just tweak them to be modern… the problem with that is (and the huge potential for Expressions) is having the selections there for everyone else who doesn’t know what options they have in the first place for riff / rhythmic patterns etc…
So I’m proposing a pop/modern music riff/rhythm catalogue of options.
