Hi! Its been a very very long time away from music writing... well.. here where i am stuck right now!

Currently i have to use this to get a scale for weird/not commonly used chord progressions (like lokrian, jewish, aeolian, etc)
https://www.scales-chords.com

1) Is there a quick way ALREADY in RC that does this - i.e Suggest Keys and Scales for a set of given chords in order of % match of notes?
if not, it would be a nice feature... Anywhere is ok for me! (right click chord progression, in progression editor, etc) ... a little menu/list (maybe coloured by number of notes in matching chords)!

There have been ENORMOUS development since the last time i check in! WONDERFUL development so far!!!

2) A little bug i find when i use the magic wand when i right-click a phrase.
e.g Using Random Melody Generator with 8 measures. Right-click, press magic wand. When i press loop phrase preview and press preview phrase in composition with all unmuted tracks. All fine! But when i close this window. The phrase still plays in background. The problem is when i Render the phrase (shortcut - a) to fine tune the melody, original 'un-rendered' loop continue to play in background. but i cannot come back to this window as phrase is NO more a generator.
WORKAROUND:
I need to undo the render to disable the loop to stop the play.

3) One last question. Can we preview all unmuted tracks while playing phrase in the Phrase Editor window? Would be nice!

OK, I am listening :). From the next update you'll have a tool like this:

You can select any number of chords, and the first 20 scales are displayed that include the chords.

Thanks for reporting the preview bug. Please don't forget to turn off the preview until this is fixed.
3) One last question. Can we preview all unmuted tracks while playing phrase in the Phrase Editor window? Would be nice!
No, sorry. The Phrase Editor is independent of the composition and has its own scale and chord settings. It is meant as an editor and test bed to design your phrases. However in 'note editing mode' you can edit the phrases in-place and preview with other tracks.

Thanks for your kind words! Yes, the development is continuous but there is still a lot to do...

Hello lulukom!

I am sorry, I do not want to make MIDI dropping more complicated by introducing a new modifier key.
The 'set notes to the nearest scale/chord note' option changes notes and I am sure if this is what people would want when importing an existing track. Anyway I added your request to the to-do list.
I'll upload a beta version next week.

Thanks,
Attila
