Hi - I see that the creator of the Live remote script for Base takes part on this board, figured I'd post this as a discussion in case anyone else has this issue...
In Shifted Device Mode, when I use the Scale Mode up and down buttons to scroll through the scales, I get some odd results:
1) The scales are ordered alphabetically by scale name rather than the order given in map.py (and in the wiki). Not a big deal.
2) The 2-character scale names shown on the LED are sometimes using the 1st 2 characters of their full scale name instead of the corresponding SCALEABBREVS abbreviations.
So for example the 3 Bebop scales all have the same name in the LED: "Be".
For my own use I wrote out how scale mode is working for me, it's a mix of SCALEABBREVS and SCALES names, all rearranged into scale name alphabetical order:
bE Bebop Dom
bE Bebop Loc
bE Bebop Maj
do Dominant Sus
En Enigmatic Min
hA Harmonic Min
hu Hungarian Min
NA Maj Pent
NE Melodic Min
NI Min Blues
NI Min Gypsy
NI Min Pent
nE Neopolitan Maj
nE Neopolitan Min
Su Super Loc
wh Whole Tone
I tried my novice scripting hand at editing map.py to fix the problem, and only seemed to mix things up more, so I went back to the original file.
I am finding that scale mode is my favorite use for the Base in Live, really hope there is a fix to make it easier to navigate. Thanks so much for any help!
