Two hour set from a one hour backing track, that's one hour of improv! See, I told you it would work, and in the first week!
Ok so not smooth in that a listener can probably pick out the prepared stuff over the live improv, but it's all music and it worked well.
Next week I'll focus on the DAW Ableton, now that I'm happy with the direction the studio is taking. I'll load up some loops midi and audio and start working on how I can transpose two synths at the same time and how to move out of one groove and into another.
