I’d really love it if there was a simple way to change the key/mode of song/artist/user presets and patterns. This is a fast way to experiment with new ideas and get far more variety from existing content.
Starting with the chord progression for Let It Be in CMaj, what if I want to hear it in minor or mixolydian mode, or F# dorian? Here’s a great example of how easy it should be:
Is anyone able to outline the number and order of steps to do the exact same thing in Scaler?
Thank you. That’s very helpful. I’m still finding my way around and assumed lock was just an on/off toggle.
Are you aware of anyway to do the same for patterns/chords in section C? If you already have progression saved or start a new one and decide you want to change modes it seems you’re kinda boxed in at that point without a ton of tweaking.
The pattern right-click menu only has 4 options, force into scale would be quite useful there too, especially if you want to duplicate a pattern and try a ham-fisted trucker’s gear change.
Actually it looks like this is another hair-pulling partial solution.
Apparently the Maintain/Force Into Scale feature only works with factory presets.
What if I import/detect my own progression, or load a user preset and want to force the detected chords into a different root/mode to match my project?
Or if I import an existing chord progression from my project into Scaler and want to force the detected chords into a different scale to create a new section?
Scale forcing should always remain an option in section A and also be added to section C. Limiting such an important feature to factory presets with no way change the scale of existing patterns is a major drawback.
