I know there is a chord track feature that could help with this but it wouldn’t improve my workflow. One addition to the piano roll would be the ability to choose a scale and have those notes slightly light up in the piano roll. Also I often select my harmony track as well as my melody track in order to see the chords I want to write over but it can be difficult because when I pen in the notes it sometimes changes which track I am editting. If there could be a way to use my harmony track as a note reference track without changing it that would be great.
Also, and I know this is a long shot, something similar to FL Studios Patcher would be amazing. That would improve my workflow and reduce clutter on my mixes to a LARGE degree.
I know this has been said but a Macro option for multiple automation parameters would be nice. It would only need to be a relatively simple plugin (I claim with very little knowledge of the programming involved).
(Oh if any of these solutions exist already I would love it if you could let me know)
In the Key Editor’s note color drop-down menu select Chord Track - it will color code the notes based on if they are in the current scale, chord or both. Also a selected note’s color will show up on the keyboard.
You can open up multiple instances of the Key Editor (there might be a preference you need to set for this, not at my DAW to check). Open up your harmony track in one window and the part you want to edit in another.
