Unwanted chord change after saving and reloading

While using Scaler v2.11 on Windows 10 64-bit in Reaper, the following happened:

The last chord in pattern1 (consisting of 8 chords) changed from E dim #5/C to C7 after saving and reloading a Chordset. The same happens when saving the project in Reaper v6.11 64-bit and reloading it.

After 8th chord changed:

Hi @Arjan

are the notes in the chord different before and after reloading or is it just the name that has changed?

I just did a quick check, and I think an “E dim #5/C” and C7 would be 2 valid names for the same chord. Scaler might be trying too hard to simplify the naming.

Thanks for reporting,

Hi @Ed1,

thanks for your reply.

If Scaler would just simplify the name of the chord without altering the sound, then it could be considered a useful feature. However, attached you can find a screenshot to demonstrate that the spread of chord notes over the keyboard is also different, e.g. there is not a C in the bass in case of the E dim #5/C chord.
