I use drag and drop almost exclusively with Scaler and have been using it that way for years. I’ve never seen it act like that.
As @jamieh suggests, some more system info will help people troubleshoot/replicate.
2 things need to happen. 1, someone else needs to replicate your issue 2, we need to determine if Scaler is delivering the wrong chord or if your DAW is somehow reading old data.
A couple things to try
- Try dragging from a different Scaler pane (A, B or C) and not the Chord pane. Pick a Scale, drag a couple chords from section B and then drag a couple other chords from section B
- Try clearing Scaler state (right click on Scaler Logo) between chord drags
- Try dragging a chord outside of Scaler (until you see the + icon) but do not drop…then drag back over scaler and drop. Scaler will do a detect and it should be the chord you dragged out.
- Try Dragging to your desktop and then dragging that file back into Scaler and it will do a detect. Does it match your expectations?
- Try turning on midi capture (pane C) and playing a few notes or chords. Stop midi capture and then click & drag the Drag button to your DAW or Desktop.
You might also consider loading something like NanoHost to test just your Scaler instance. A number of forum users use it (I do almost every day) It is free, simple and almost nothing to install. Scaler 2 Standalone version - General Discussion - Scaler Plugin - Community Forum
Good luck…D&D is one of Scalers great assets.
