I’ll give you context but first a disclaimer I consider Scaler Gods gift to humanity and the I see below unexpected behavior as a minute annoyance .
The problem with green keyswitches only happens when, in Pad mode, looping is activated and pattern change is done manually.
Triggering pattern change using notes on Scaler track works as expected.
When (imperfect) human triggers pattern change (1 → 2) at the end of Pattern 1, if it’s done a bit late, Scaler will play 1st chord of Pattern 1 and then continue with chords 2, 3, 4 of Pattern 2. Second iteration of Pattern 2 will be of corse complete.
If patterns have not equal number of chord blocks, another strange behavior happens when changing from “shorter” pattern to “longer” pattern. When changing at the end of Pattern 2 to Pattern 1, last chord of Pattern 1 will get played (and only then Scaler will start from chord 1).
Both patterns have the same length but different number of chords.
I mostly avoid those problems selecting all patterns at once and making Scaler play those sequentially.
Would be so great to have “trigger playback of pattern with green keys” option ie. pressing C would play Pattern 1 end to end, pressing D would do the same for Pattern 2.
