In the early stages of songwriting a common challenge is working out interesting chord structures that are both ear catching and musically sound. When a songwriter is in one of these frustrating stages all they ever need is a quick chord shape suggestion or two in order to spark some fresh ideas. If you have ever found yourself in this type of struggle where you just can’t think of a chord for a song then Scaler 1.5 by Loopmasters could very well prove to be an invaluable plug-in to have in your creative songwriting toolkit.
In this video we show you a handful of new features in Scaler 1.5 including the new guitar fretboard view and chord editor mode.
What Is Scaler?
Scaler is an inspirational utility instrument that helps songwriters and recording artists discover chords and progressions. Scaler is very smart, it detects what key and scale your music is in by inputting a MIDI performance and it suggests chord variations that match your music. It has the potential to inspire a tune from scratch by churning out a set of chords in a key you've yet to explore.
Scaler enables users to arrange chord progression within the UI, then it is a simple as drag and drop from Scaler into a MIDI within a DAW and you are ready to go.
In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Plugin Boutique, we show you how to get interesting chord variations into your music productions using Scaler 1.5.
