If you use Cubse and Scaler you have two great tools for handling chords, Scaler and Cubase’s Chord Track.
In this example I started with a Scaler Track and worked out some patterns. Next I recorded a MIDI track of the basic chords for playback by Omnisphere. Now, in Cubase you create a Chord Track, select the track and use Cubase’s “Create Chord Symbols” function. Now you have essentially imported the chords from Scaler into a Cubase Chord Track. There are some slight differences here and there, but this gives you options for using Scaler in conjunction with Chord Track.
We should also mention that we can start with chords on a Cubase Chord Track and use Scaler’s MIDI detect to bring chords into Scaler.
A year or so ago a very experienced Cubase user, miles ahead of me, told me in all his years with the program he’d never used “create chord symbols.” It is kind of a hidden gem in Cubase, imho and worth a mention for Scaler users.
It is indeed. One of the first things I discovered since I am a Scaler aficionado. The beauty of chord track is you have tracks assigned to it and make a chord change, all following tracks change. And you can have a MIDI track set to follow live and it will correct your playing with the correct notes.
