Scratch – Chromatic Scales

Written by Judith Bell

Edit the “Change degree” to create the following:

  • chromatic scale
  • whole tone scale
  • diminished 7th arpeggio
  • augmented arpeggio

You can also edit the “note” it starts on, the tempo.

Can you change the scale from ascending to descending?

Can you write a scratch programme to create a major scale? (tone, tone, semitone, tone, tone, tone, semitone).

Can you make the scale easily start on different notes (tonics) to play in different keys?
