Review of Plugin Boutique Scaler 2
Review of Plugin Boutique Scaler 2
If you are a songwriter or music composer, you know that sometimes you run into that dreaded writers block. Sometimes it only takes a new sound, or chord progression to break you out of it and allow the muse to inspire you. Scaler 2 is designed to be the type of tool for the music composer and Songwriter to inspire and to break you out of your box by exposing you to a wide variety of progressions, melodies, and huge amount of alliterations of rhythms and performances.

If this was the only task that Scaler 2 performed that would more than justify it’s price of $59 ($29 upgrade cost from Scaler 1) but, Scaler 2 is so much more! Scaler 2 is a tool to learn music theory, their detection tools can tell you the key of a song or suggest chords to fit a particular melody. You can setup a series of chord progressions and play complicated chords with one finger by binding it to your midi keyboard and so much more.
