the idea behind playing relative notes is, that one key will play a certain note in a scale up or down based on the interval.
That means, if you have a Key that plays always the next note in a scale up, like C, D, E, F etc …
and another Key which plays always two notes down, like C, A, F, D etc …
You can play alone with these two Keys the whole scale, also repeating melodies are possible to play, it’s a bit of a controlled randomness.
Inside the ReBoard Max for Live Device you can choose a scale from a collection and you can map any Key from your Keyboard to an interval or also to a fixed note, like the Root Note or the 1st, 2nd … etc. Note within the selected scale.
ReBoard is Compatible with MPE Keyboards like the Roli Seaboard or the Expressive E Osmose
how it works
In this example you see that Note D3 triggers always the next note in the scale up.
Note C3 will trigger always two notes in the scale down.
set a scale
Here you can set a scale and the rootnote. Only the Notes from the selected Scale will be played.
