Scaler – The Creative Chord Composer plugin for your DAW
Scaler by Plugin Boutique is an intuitive plugin designed to add new levels of note and chord articulation to your productions.
Not only does it make producing compelling chord progressions and melodies a breeze, it also makes for a fun, hands-on learning experience for beginners. Scaler can detect which chord or scale you’re playing in and make intelligent suggestions as to which chords will work alongside what you’re currently playing. This allows you to build unique, new progressions that you may have never thought of using. It’s also great if you’ve got a melody in your head, but you can’t seem to work out which key it is actually in.
Scaler comes bundled with a host of presets from renowned producers such as MJ Cole and Carl Cox, alongside presets pertaining to certain popular genres – a great way to get started straight out of the box. Scaler’s built-in content includes a staggering 1728 scales and modes!
A great tool if you haven’t got a MIDI keyboard!
Scaler is fantastic if you haven’t got a MIDI controller at your disposal, as it gives you the ability to “audition” sets of chords much easier than programming in a ton of MIDI notes. You can even drag and drop the chords directly into your DAW once you’ve found that magic combination.
Amongst a plethora of handy features, you also can map sets of chords to be triggered using a single note on your MIDI controller. This is great for live performances or just creating complex chord progressions on-the-fly.
Whether you’re a music theory beginner or seasoned professional, Scaler will open a new world of performance possibilities for your software and hardware, and you may well find it become part of your essential plugin arsenal.
