Loop-based Improvisation on Cubase

A funny way for improvising/creating ideas for new songs is to use a software like Cubase.

It is possible to create a basic loop (8 or 16 bars) on which to improvise.

The loop can be created from scratch, by recording other pianos/instruments, or by using an existing loop.

By recording in loop mode it's possible to completely record your improvisation and have every repetition stored in a new cubase event.

Then by editing the post-improvisation part starts and you can get the best out of your improvisation by cutting and pasting...
