Is there any way scalar could create a virtual midi out that could appear in the Maschine Midi ports to get around this nonsense with Maschines plugins not sending midi? I don’t have any faith that Native Inst will address this any time soon. I’d love to be able to route Scalar to other plug ins without blue cat or whatever it is. Or maybe have scalar host other VSTs so the midi routing is internal?
Welcome @Mod1 We’d like this too and we are headed there.
Any time soon? This is a true drawback when working in Maschine, mainly because triggered one note chords only record as single notes. I know, you can drag and drop midi, but triggering Maschine sounds and recording them so that chords show up on their grid would be a GODSEND!!
I bought a Launchpad Pro a month or so ago and the chord mode has made any need for Scaler much less of an issue in Maschine.
Scalar as an iPad/iPhone app would be cool too. You could just use it in the midi input of maschine.
Hi @Mod1, I’ve had success using Element to host Scaler and then route the midi output wherever I needed. Free compiled installers on Github, and I compiled the latest 0.46.0 version on MacOS Big Sur. I had to source the deprecated VST2 libs separately, cause… Steinberg. Message me if you’re interested in the 0.46.0 MacOS app.
I have downloaded and installed Element on Windows. I’m starting to learn how to use it, and it’s very intuitive. I find it very interesting. I’ll tell you how it goes. Thanks eakwarren for the link.
