It’s a mammoth update with some really nice new features. Please keep all beta related conversations in the above linked thread. Looking forward to feedback and thanks to all the team involved for the hard work over in getting this release ready!
It’s like having all the parts of your song or composition visible and accessible with a click.
I was getting a bit carried away with this to see how far I could go, leading to a few suggestions.
The first is visual and about making the Scaler widows organised and accessible.
I quickly built up the number of Scaler Instruments I used to Follow, the Leader.
My screen became a sea of Scaler parts. I tried to resize each to place them in some order on the screen, but sizing is limited. I would like a line or block of Scaler icons representing each incident of a Scaler Instrument used as Followers. You could then quickly click and open up as required. I know you can use the DAW and select them this way, but just trying to limit the jumps you have to make.
Then there is the word Follow and Leader. This is a great help but is it in the right place? Would it be possible to have it near the title Scaler too?
Having the Leader and Follow names in different colours is a small but significant improvement. I like these small touches that help the user.
I built up a simple piece and then added a new midi track. On this track, I used Scaler to Control the midi. I then selected Live Sync. The cords from the Leader appeared, and I could play along with my simple piece. This means I can use other instruments. However, I noticed it didn’t show as a Follower—just a tiny point.
That said, Live Sync is amazing!

Having some fun with it now, pretty cool! But are those synth wave and trance bass performances supposed to be quite so fast? Seems a bit over the top, and not how I remember them in previous versions.
