The Scalomat is another kind of masterkeyboard for the Jazzmutant Lemur.
It consists of 5 octaves and 7 tones each octave. On a normal keyboard you got 12 tones each octace, but most common scales use only 7 tones. So the scalomat helps you staying in your scale while playing along.
You choose your keynote on the first rotary – 0 stands for C, 5 for F, the numbers indicate the semitone-steps.
The other 6 semitones are always relative to your keynote.
Also you can change your midichannel, activate notelength (for a delayed noteoff message, indicated by the pads light), enter switch-mode (the scalomat holds the tones until you press them again) or add 2 additional tones (the pitch of these tones is always relative to the pad you play).
As long as the Lemur is not pressure-sensible, you enter the keyvelocity on the big fader at the right.
In version 6 you can also save your settings to 8 presets and recall them later.
You can download the Scalomat from the jazzmutant´s homepage.
