I downloaded a Scaler v1.8 demo and have been trying it out in REAPER 6.3.
I have instantiated it on a track and can listen to its built in sounds.
I have also routed to another VSTi on another track and can hear the chords with that VSTi.
I can record the bound trigger notes using a MIDI controller on the tracks.
What I can not seem to do but expected to be able to, is record the MIDI chords as I “play” them by triggering the chords within the Scaler interface by clicking on the chord labels. I can play a progression in this manner but I can not seem to record the MIDI.
I can drag and drop the chords into REAPER, but I can’t seem to get REAPER to record the chords even though they are obviously being sent to the other VSTi as MIDI. I can hear the chords (even with the Scaler built in audio muted) as I play them in the scaler interface so they seem to be routed correctly.
I am writing to ask if I should expect to be able to do this, so that I may either continue trying to figure out what I am doing wrong or if I should accept that it is not possible.
Hello…as per my experience as long as you don’t change scale or use easy scale(s) containing a given number of notes it isn’t a big deal for composing such things like you want.
(notice : Easy scale mode can ease adaptation process if changing idea for a transposition, scales modulations etc. as you manipulate keynotes relative positions in the scale and not their absolute chromatic positions)
I think it’s also theorically possible to drive this from an other midi controller containing pads… and allow record of such live performance with two fingers
