    This would be cool, I tend to like the minor scale set 7 and not much else, be good to have more choice here

    ... I'd like that, too, but I would like to have the option to create my own scales even more. And with such a function us users will have made these missing scales in no time. So, I'd rather have the developers spending some time on a feature that would make Maschine automatically create chord set suggestions on chords we're playing in some sort of detection mode for that...

    I would also like the ability to set the duration of the attack time for each note of a chord. As it is, all the notes are attacked at the same time and this is not realistic.

    It would be great to have new sets of chords for extended chords
    I like the last 2 sets of minor chord sets but more would be welcome

    @Markbenson116: I guess, a tool like this would be quite helpful for you. I haven't tested it, yet, and how it would work with Maschine (especially on a PC), but it looks really interesting and it seems to be able to do complex things...





    (btw - didn't we meet at KVR some years ago?)

    what we really need is the ability too create our own chord sets , to save it .
    i don't agree at all the limitation to a few chords set more . cause it is again the same limitation .
    let us free at least with the harmony !! no limitations please !!

    Why are we missing basic modes like Dorian, Mixolydian, Phrygian, Lydian, etc? Also, Phrygian Dominant too. There are a bunch of utterly obscure, useless scales, but not these super important ones.

    Please! At least the basic modes!? My God. So many people asking for such an easy fix.

    I too would like these added. I'm having to rely upon 3rd party plugins which augment my Midi output for the keyboard, rather than being able to select it as a scale on the Maschine controller. It would add a lot more creatively.

    It never ceases to blow my mind that the N.I.'s Ableton Live 9 templates have had vastly more integrated scale functions for Maschine as a controller in midi mode than the Maschine does in it's own hardware/software.

    I can really use more of the basic scales/modes (Dorian, Lydian, Phrygian, Mixolydian) with their root notes located at square 1. Also, definitely melodic minor and its accompanying modes.

    I can transpose from the "Major" and "Minor" scales, but this means that each of these essential modes starts at a different position, and this affects the usable range, while also being a lot to think about in live performance. Having these would be a game-changer for me, as my live performances rely on Maschine as a melody instrument as well as a rhythm instrument.

    Of course, if there were a way to enter user scales, that would be over the top awesome.

    +1 Please! Also Melodic Minor. If it is at all possible, it would be wonderful to be able to write our own scales, but I'm not sure how feasible that is...
