- [Instructor] Produced by Softpedia Labs at the…Harvey Mudd College computer science department,…Impro-visor is completely free with no addition add-ons…or pay-only features.…It is designed to help improvisors with composition…and improvisation.…While initially aimed at blues musicians, the number of…styles has expanded in more recent versions to include…an assortment of global styles.…You may also print lead sheets or export your songs…to MIDI or MusicXML files.…For this video, I'll give a quick overview of Improviser's…functionality and highlight some of its unique…instructional features.…
When creating a song for the first time, begin by setting…preferences for the lead sheet.…These are found both under preferences in the menu…and also by using the buttons at the top right…of the toolbar.…From here, I can set preferences, including style,…tempo, form length, instrumentation, key signature,…and much more.…I'll add a key signature of minus two, which indicates…two flats per B flat major.…I'll also set my tempo to 120, and then save my preferences.…
