Scaler 2 - detecting key from "internal" chords

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but I wonder if it’s possible for Scaler to be able to automatically detect scales and suggest chords from chords played in Scaler, rather than by Midi input or audio? As an example, I have a basic chord progression played out on guitar, so I know 4 or 5 chords. I can select these chords manually in Scaler, adding them manually into the first pattern at the bottom of the screen. However, if I press “record” to trigger the detection, and play the pads with my mouse, the detection does not seem to work - it seems that Scaler is looking only at external, incoming Midi? Am I missing something obvious, or is it just designed not to work this way.

I can of course grab the chords, drag them into the DAW, and play them back, but wondered if there was a simpler way?

Hi @blaze591

you can select multiple chords (using the lasso or CMD+Click), then using “Right-Click > Detect” you can find which scale they are from and continue your exploration.
