Default Scale Descriptions

Here's a description of the built-in scale quantization options on the Vector. For any of these that look unfamiliar, just run a search on wikipedia to get the details. The 7th chords are not scales in the way that most folks think of scales, but they do make for an interesting quantization option.

Cheers,
Jim

Thanks so much for this list. I was wondering what a few of these were!

By the way, and correct me if I'm wrong as my music theory is pretty limited. But why does Pentatonic Minor C have a Db? I thought it was C, Eb, F, G, Bb.

You are correct -- that is a bug!

Hi Jim,

Any chance for microtonal scales in the near future? Having Pyth and Just without a separate quantizer would be rad!

Cheers,
Nate

Something I absolutely loved about the Intellijel Metropolis are the more exotic scales you could choose. They made for very interesting melodies and I never found these scales in any other sequencer.
Id think it should be super easy to incorporate these scales in the Vector firmware and would be so happy to find them there in the future.

Heres an overview of the Metropolis scales. Especially the ones from super locrian on were very interesting to use.
