Scaler 2 is good at... Genesis band style

Since I have Scaler I tried to make a Genesis-style Hammond part and I was always unable, so far

The super simple routing, where 2 Scalers feed the same VB3 plugin

The VB3 pattern’s name is not surpring… :grinning:

The 2 Scalers use synthwave scales (@jamieh thanks) and different patterns

Bass and drums are build in the usual manner

Unbelievable, you got it 100%. If I were you, I would add a guitar solo. Time to negotiate with Steve Hackett :sunglasses:
Extraordinary job, amico.

Why do you make your SC tracks private? I can’t “like” them when they’re private. I think they’re good stuff to share publicly…

I was thinking that the Genesis band can ask me the money for a copyright infringement
and I’am thinking to that nowadays, in the Era Of Steal… OOOPS! Sampling :rofl:
OK, I’ll set it as public

Ok, you definitely have the sound as on my favorite Genesis album, Nursery Crime. Wow

Happy to see I did it right
:grinning:

Nevertheless, having that kind of hammond tune with Scaler is not easy, because the suitable patterns are a few: notably the triplets coupled with arpeggios or exotic times like 5/4 etc.

I’ll try again tonight to see what happens
