dbr said it on the begining. for compositional purposes. just as a basis or foundation while he figures out melody and harmony he will later record real drums.
thats what i do at least. so i dont waste time on making a unique beat , programing etc and focus on the music itself/hook. after what was on my head is translated into my sequencer i start focusing on the beat itself and its interaction w/ da music.
but then again, sometimes a kik ass beat/loop i made myself will inspire me to add certain music/lyrics etc.
