PC Mac Plugin Boutique Scaler 2 v2.1.0
Scaler 2 is an inspirational and powerful music theory workstation that gives you access to a world of new ideas, expressions and melodies. With powerful detection of MIDI and audio, Scaler 2 can determine what key and scale you’re in and suggest chords that match your music. The plugin helps you discover the perfect melody with performance expressions, and can even suggest ways to change from one key to another.
The Scaler story starts with key and scale detection, and both MIDI and audio are now supported. It can then use its music theory knowledge to suggest chords and help you write melodic phrases.
There are multiple new features here, starting with more than 200 Expressions - performances, phrases and rhythms that have been created by professional musicians. These are locked to the notes in your current scale and can be triggered from your MIDI keyboard.
You now get more than 30 internal sounds - piano, synth, orchestral and guitar patches are all here - as well as more than 100 new song- and genre-based chord sets and more than 100 new artist chord sets. Plus, you can choose from more than 100 suggested modulation paths and presets that will help you to make effective key changes.
The ability to lock keys to your chords, meanwhile, will help non-pianists to play complex melodies on their MIDI keyboard, and there are humanise options to make Scaler’s output sound more realistic. There are new tools in the progression builder, too, making it easier to put together chord patterns.
Other enhancements include MIDI capture, which lets you perform inside the plugin and then export the results as MIDI, and a DAW sync feature that links chord patterns to your DAW’s playback so that you can audition new progressions in the context of your project.
