I just bought Cubase Pro 12 yesterday. While testing this DAW, I noticed a problem with Scale Assistant.
Without Scale Assistant, the corresponding white notes I played would be:
C - D - E - F - G - (A) - B - C
With Scale Assistant on in C Arabian, the white notes that I assume Scale Assistant will alter would be:
C - D - E - F - F# - (G#) - A# - C
However, while playing on all white notes, Scale Assistant gives me the following:
C - D - E - F - F# - (A#) - A# - C
I assume while playing the A key on my keyboard, Scale Assistant will change it to G#. Instead, it gave me an A# twice on both the A and B keys.
C Arabian is just one example. Many different scales can cause the same problem for me, like C Aeolian (natural minor), C Chinese, C Hungarian 2,… just to name a few. The only difference is they will choose to repeat the same note twice on two different keys based on the scale, not just the A key as in C Arabian.
Could somebody please let me know how to fix this? Or should I wait for an update for this to be fixed? I’ve been using Ableton for a while, and their Scale Mode didn’t cause this problem for me.
Thanks in advance.
