Plugin Boutique has released version 1.2 of Scaler, a unique and inspirational MIDI effect that makes finding chords and progressions intuitive and fun.
The update includes humanized note velocity within chords, MIDI export length, new chord sets and scales, and more.
With note detection, scale selection and chord suggestions, Scaler is a comprehensive but easy-to-use toolbox that will help anyone make better music.
A first of its kind, Scaler can determine what key and scale you’re in and suggest chords that match your music, or it can inspire a tune from scratch by providing a set of initial chords in an unexplored key. With the onboard bank of 1,728 scales and modes and over 100 genre and artist presets, there’s more than enough to keep the juices flowing.
