Fleer, does scaler have kind of midi drag and drop output ? Or do you have to record the corrected midi keyboard input in your daw ? Cause I think the principle will be the same on both very similiar vst.

we can drag and drop any chord box from scaler into the daw. Also we can arrange chords side by side in scaler and drag the whole progression.

I have looked in the manual but I have not found any way to use the chordprogression with strum styles or whatever as midi drag and drop, otherway its useles for me, seems to be "only" a help for playing midi keyboard, please correct me if I am wrong, if I could get the chord progression as midi drag and drop might be nice as inspiration.
I don't think instachord has drag and drop. You can record its midi output though.

Strange, in my logic drag and drop midi should be more important for the chordprogression generater then for the melody correcting tool. But I must admit I did not really get the difference. Has anybody both and could explain in short terms ? Maybe I have to wait for the next Scaler sale, but on the other hands actually there are dozens and dozens of tools doing this kind of stuf and I already have more then enough of them, maybe just leave this one out..
Dex:
What are the expansions? Just extra presets?
Yes, as far as I understood, two with jazz and blues presets, forgot the third.

Again: where is the use of it if you cant drop that progression as midi into your daw ?

Instachord is not really a chord progression generator. It's more of a chord arpeggiator and strummer. You have to program (or play) the chord order and strumming yourself. Then once you've done that you can record the midi output.

Here's an example of how you would program it:

And here's the midi output, zoomed in a little more. If you look closely you can see the differences between the up and down strums:

Edit: Don't they have a demo? Why not try that if you're on the fence about it.

Yes it does have drag and drop midi function. Even in arpeggio mode if you like.

Had InstaChord for some time. Still looks like Bundle deal is worth it for Expansions ??
I find that expansions are just few more chord combinations/presets(kind of text files which we can add to the presets folder). So if you want more chord progressions you can get them.

Soooo …… in Reaper, one creates a Track containing ChordPotion and then adds something like OTS EV Rock Standard like an FX … on the Track ? Is it incorrect to simply do a Send from ChordPotion to EV Rock Standard ? :barefoot:
