Using my DAW metronome to record patterns

I would like to record a pattern with bind on, using various rhythms played by my kybd. As soon as I start playing my DAW, it automatically plays the chords in the pattern. Doesn’t give me a chance to enter rhythms I want to record and drag into daw. Do any of you use an external metronome to avoid this, or as a new user are there switches I’m missing that will allow me to do this?

Scaler doesn’t record rhythms or chords. It detects chords but the timing is dependent on Scalers timing in it’s preferences under the gear icon on the upper right. Scaler is not a recorder in any way only a detector.
You can record a pattern of you playing the pads in a rhythmic way but you record that in the DAW track, not internal to Scaler.
