Ha, ha ... deep in the weeds with Scala.
Have fun playing those 26 note scales with quarter step intervals on your keyboard!

Thanks, DF. In which case I was clutching at a straw. I'm
maybe going to have to gird my loins, hold my nose etc and
take a jump.........
At the same time (anyone?), the need these aps (whatever
type they are) meet is pretty fundamental, musically . So
I still wonder whether there might be older programmes in
the old full sense that did something of the same sort ?
Ian ... AFIK that is not the case. Programs
'progressing' to VSTi plugin status are the
Virtual Studio Technology was developed by
Steinberg about 20 years ago. It provided a
development kit for initially development of audio
and MIDI plugins for use in a DAW. I believe
subsequently the VST instrument plugins were
developed. Initially these were things like
softsynths, i.e., audio triggered by MIDI, and
samplers like Kontakt.
Somewhere along this timeline ... VST is now at
v.3 with v.2.4 still extant ... VST instruments with
sequencing capability came along as VSTi MIDI
instruments. Some of these plugins, like
RapidComposer were developed from free standing like
named programs, as is BIAB VSTi, but the majority,
including to the best of my knowledge Scaler, were
purpose built as VSTi for plugin use in a DAW.
Not sure if this is a very clear exposition nor
entirely histor ically accurate, but this is my
understanding from following these developments over
the past 15 years or so.

Thanks very much, DFT. I will look at
It has occurred to me since first
posting that many plug-ins have
'application ancestry' - as indeed in
the case of the Biab plugin we've been
hearing about in the past few days?
Does anyone know if this is/was the
case with Scaler ?
Ian, you might take a look
at this. It is not actually a
plugin per se, so a DAW isn't
necessary. You are still left
with the issue of capturing
the output if you want to
save/ tweak it ... but you
presumably could record it
into a MIDI program.
I've used it ... but now
