Workflow of Scaler in Conjunction with Rapid Composer

I’m starting out with Scaler and want to know if anyone else uses Rapid Composer in their workflow?
especially if you prefer to start with a melody, such as one generated from RC.

Perhaps import a melody into Scaler, build a supporting chord progression for it, and then drag the MIDI back into RC for accompaniment pattern tweaking/generation and adding more instruments?

I’ve started using RC but not heavily yet. I’ve taken chords from Scaler into RC and that works well. I’ve used melody or phrases in RC in sync with Scaler. Lots of possibilities. I like the picking pattern generator in RC quite a bit and the piano intro type things work well with harp.
So far RC makes things slower for me so I’m trying to change that.

I always think that scaler should improve this function by itself.

You can even join realtrack
Whether realtrac is added or not
The idea is

Chord > style > generate music

Rapid Composer is a tool like many others. It doesn’t deal with styles. The style choice I find wrong. I don’t want software writing for me. I want it to teach me about chords, how music works. Scaler does a good job at that. Music should not be about pushing a button and that’s it.
