Simple Scaler is a scale filter that allows customizing the notes of the scale. Its options are inspired by one of the early Audiobus MIDI filter apps that doesn’t look like will be updated to AUv3 MIDI.
This is meant to be a quick and simple tool. For an amazing full-featured scale script, check out Scale Compendium by Bryan Appel
Simple Scaler v2.2
Set a root note and scale. The pads will light to reflect which notes are in the scale. You can add or disable notes by tapping the pads. Changing the root note will keep the same pattern but change the scale notes so you can transpose easily.
▫️ In Nearest mode, the closest scale tone will be played for notes not in the scale. If the distance to a valid note is the same then the higher note will be uwed.
▫️ Filter plays nothing if notes aren’t in the scale.
▫️ Chromatic mode (not scale) plays the root of the scale on C and then up the scale for each successive key. If there are fewer than 12 notes the higher keys do nothing.
▫️ White Keys is the same, but only responds to the seven white keys. If there are more than seven notes in the scale, the top notes will not play. PassThru allows all notes through.
▫️ PRESETS: The current scale can be saved to one of the four preset pads. Double-tap to SAVE (pad turns green), Long-Press to RECALL.
▫️ CC CONTROL: to enable changing the note filter using MIDI CC’s change cc_control = YES in the @Settings section and remember to press Upload, then save the script. See the notes for usage. Default = NO
IMPORTANT: To avoid stuck notes, only make scale changes when notes are not playing.
