How to do this in Live 8? (Midi & Scales ...)

Post by cenik11 » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:24 pm

Hey folks :)

Okay, I realize that this wreaks of supreme laziness but I'm no musician so...

Is it possible in Live 8 to use one (or more) of the MIDI plug-ins/FX to force Live to stay within a certain scale *as one plays on a MIDI keyboard*? For instance, if I decide that I want to write a melody within the C min 7 scale, can I somehow force Live to keep the notes that I play on the keyboard within that scale even if I hit a 'wrong' note on the keyboard?

Thank you!

The Scale effect chapelier fou mentions is built in to Live and will do exactly what you describe.

This is a Live-Pack from Covert Operators for a standard Live install, no suite or max for Live necessary. It is all the scale and chord types. It does exactly what you want.

Thank you all very much for the quick, helpful, and non-judgmental replies :)

The Covert Operators Live pack is EXACTLY what I'm after. It's awesome - so thankful to have found it.
