MIDI overdub


Sorry for the absolute beginner question but...I can't for the life of me figure out how to record into an existing MIDI clip, and on each recording pass erase the previous pass, while keeping the content of the original clip.

So to explain...

If I have an 4 bar loop of a kick, I want to record a hi-hat part over it into the same clip. Each time it loops back to record, I want to overwrite the hi-hat I'm trying to get down while keeping the kick. If I don't press anything I want the hi-hat overwritten with nothing.

Hopefully that's clear! Am I missing something simple?

    Thanks, but I don't see anywhere in that article answering my question.

    I want to continuously loop record, and on each pass the previous take is overwritten. Is this possible?
