How to set up FTS to work together with SCALA
From Tune Smithy
Setting FTS up for SCALA
If you run both FTS and Scala you may want to be able to set the two programs up so that they can interact with each other.
- You can add the Scala scales and modes lists to FTS, so that they appear as drop lists and can also be searched in FTS.
- You can configure FTS with a button to show any scales you make in FTS in Scala.
- Also the other way around, Scala has a menu entry you can use to show the current scale in FTS as well.
With FTS 2.4. you could use the old combined installer from Harmony Central, but this won't work with 3.0.
Also, download the scales archive, which you can find at the bottom of the Scala downloads page.
Now start up FTS, and go to
Then follow the instructions - Scala.exe , or just Scala , in the files lists. It's in your new SCALA folder, the one you installed SCALA into.to find your new SCALA Scales folder - the one with all the .scl files in it. Then, use to find SCALA itself - shown as
This will fill in thebox and the box with the locations of the scales and the application.
Then click the button to.
This makes the drop lists of all the SCALA scales, and all the SCALA modes, and also the file smithy.cmd used to start FTS from SCALA.
To find the new lists of scales you have just made, go to the main windowlist and scroll down to the entry. You'll find them in that list.
To test everything is working, , click.
Now you can use all the SCALA capabilities to investigate it and use it. One common use is to show all the intervals of the scale, usingin SCALA.
To go back the other way, from within SCALA type @smithy in the command line and it should then show the scale in FTS.
Each time you do use the the @smithy command, it will start up a new copy of FTS.
If you decide you want to show all the scales in the same copy of FTS, go back to FTS, click No when asked if you want each one to start a new copy of FTS.and answer
So, you've gone both ways.
You can search and sort the SCALA scales and modes lists, more of which is explained in the help for, and .
