Just fixed it. I forgot one line of code (or accidentally deleted it)

After going through the Phrygian Dominant example, I was thinking about a "Scale Editor" that would make it easier for people to add new presets. This could be part of Chord Fiddler or separate.


You could enter a name like "Whole-Tone" and a set of intervals (2222222 in this case), click "Add", and the program would edit orba_scales.json to do the rest.

In general, a user currently has to work out two different sets of offsets depending whether they want to add a scale to the Maj or Min slot. But they might potentially want to add any scale in the list to either slot, and the Min offsets have a fixed relation to the Maj ones, so Min can be automatically calculated from Maj. And they can both be calculated from a list of intervals. Plenty of these can be found online; eg:

(I like the separate drop-down lists for "Min" and "Maj" in the Chord Fiddler interface, but I think it would be easier if they both had the same list of scales, with the second one calculated from the first one, and the first one calculated from a basic interval list.)
