I’ve been trying all the fantastic Songs, Artists and Performances. Often many are just bewildering. This can be something as simple as not understanding the name given, to how I could use them in the context of a song.
Don’t get me wrong, I use many over and over, and I’m sure this would vary according to individual taste. I do wish I could hide the ones I don’t like/use rather than having to keep User settings.
However, I have found something that was staring me in the face that I think is amazing!
I love to play chords in my left hand and search for melodies with my right, so that’s standard for most of us.
However, this can get a bit monotonous at times when you seem to be using the same key, same chords and same notes.
During one of these moments, I found another ‘Wow!’ moment with Scaler.
Scaler Control = Midi Track
Instrument = Steinway Grand Piano (Logic Inst)
Scale = C
Key-Lock = Chord Notes
Voice Grouping = C2 - B3
Humanise = Both
Section B = Binding On
I moved the KeySwitches down one octave using Preferences. I did this to match my keyboard, which only has 49 keys.
With these settings, I can easily play chords using the KeySwitches and use white notes to play melodies.
I’d been playing for about thirty minutes, and that same-old, same-old was setting in. My fingers were on autopilot and tinkering with some melody. I was staring at Scaler, wondering what to do next. I was flicking up and down the many Scales in the middle section of Scaler when I accidentally clicked on the Harmonic Major Scale. It was like I was playing something so different, and a magical tune played back at me.
I’ve spent much time going up and down, and trying, the many scales. I have found chord progression and melody treasures all the way. If you have not tried playing the many scales, you are missing a gem of Scaler.
Have a go, and let us all know what you think.
