Very interesting! Thanks for posting the link. He doesn't say so in  
the overdubbed voice track, but it's actually a good demo for Logic's  
cycle recording feature. Such "real-time MIDI looping" had been  
possible with Logic for some twelve, thirteen years now. That  
CamelPhat also sounds nice when he comes at the B section. Back in  
the eighties and nineties, before advanced audio looping came around,  
I used to envy those "MIDI musicians" that played keyboards and had  
access to this new world of layering and instant composition. But  
today we all have equal tools in that department, no matter your  
choice of first instrument.
