Scale Compendium

This is a collection of presets for the Drambo CV Quantizer module using the same data as my Mozaic midi quantizer effect of the same name. Included are over 30 scales along with all their modes in all 12 keys. Every common scale—as well as a few rather uncommon ones—plus common triads and 7th chords, and equal divisions of the octave are included. Scales are organized hierarchically via folders by banks, scales, modes, and keys.

To install:

1) Download Zip file and extract.
2) Open Drambo and instantiate a CV Quantizer.
3) Tap the top of the module and select “Presets” from the menu.
4) At the bottom of the next menu, tap “Import folder.”
5) Navigate to where you extracted the Zip file and select the “Scale Compendium” folder and tap “Done.” ***This step can take a while, and it may appear that nothing is happening, but if you’re patient it will work.***
6) Now you have hundreds of unique scales to choose from. Have fun!

This was a massive data entry project, and while I did my best to be accurate, errors are nearly inevitable. If you spot any, please let me know so I can correct them. Thank you!

    Wow, this is sweet. I wish there was directory import as opposed to single folder though ;)

    Note: It is possible to import the entire Scale Compendium folder all at once. It takes a while and Brambo seems to lock up while it’s working, with no indication that it’s doing anything, but it does eventually import all the folders.
