Cales allows you to map your keyboard’s keys to a musical scale.

This will ensure that you will always stay in key, and never hit a wrong note. When "easy mode" is enabled, you can play any scale using only the white keys with "C" always being the tonic (or "root" note). More than 20 scales are included, and you can easily add your own custom scales.

You can use a VST Rack to enable access to more than one VSt in a Channel, OR you can change your DAW to something more effective - e.g.CUBASE

You can add your own scales. From the manual: Cales ships with more than 20 scales, but you can easily add you own scales by editing the scales.txt file. This file is located in the Cales data folder (' CodeFN42Cales' in your 'Documents' folder). Scales.txt is a standard text file you can edit in any text editor (for example Notepad that ships with Windows). NOTE: This file is automatically created when you (FIRST) open Cales if it does NOT already exist. Add each scale setup on a separate line. First the scale name, followed by a semicolon, [ ; ] then numbers separated by a comma to describe the scale formula in semitones. For example, the major scale: Major;0,2,4,5,7,9,11. NOTE: To create a separator item in the drop-down menu, add a hyphen on a separate line. For example: Blues;0,3,5,6,7,10 (YES, BLUES ONLY HAS SIX) Dorian;0,2,3,5,7,9,10. I will try and find the necessary info to add scales myself and then update here. Just downloaded the VST and am offline for a few days starting Sunday 27 october.
