Scaler is good at... West Coast

West Coast…
Well, not 100% sure, so let me know if I am wrong

Anyway, the routing

1st Step: select a nice series of chords that sounds good with one of Scaler embedded instruments; I found this series

Scaler-chords.xml (9.7 KB)

Scaler feeds chords, dropping them in the AAS Strum-GS 2 Chords Keys area

2nd Step: select one chord only in the 2nd Scaler and use MIDI Polysher to transpose notes having them always falling in the AAS Strum-GS 2 Strumming Keys area

Scaler-arp.xml (8.2 KB)

Now put both Scaler in sync, use Latch in the second Scaler, then hit the space-bar, so the whole thing plays in loop, then fiddle with all kind of performances (I found that just Strumming is useless) in the 2nd Scaler and transpose up and down through MIDI Polysher as far as you listen something interesting

Starting from arpeggios, and going further I found tons of interesting arpeggios close to finger-picking sometimes

The AAS Strum-GS 2 (in Guitar mode) and its amp

I don’t upload a sample because AAS Strum-GS 2 has no MIDI out, so all amazing variations I produced by jamming (and godendo come un riccio) weren’t recorded, GRRR :japanese_goblin:

But I am sure you’ll have more fun trying variation and listening the various outputs by yourselves
