About audio processing, it can, but you need a "good" machine
(Pentium200) to make it work nicely..

About MIDI looping:
You can work with loops if you already have them set. Then you can mix and
turn them on and off, etc with a MIXER view wich is very versatile.
As you said, it's still a matter of pointing and clicking (keyboard's
but you can still can have a good time.
About spontaneity and improvisation, it depends on how much you have set
up to make it loop. The "spontaneity" problem resides in that you cannot
new material to the one set if it's playing.
Anyway, I think it as one more usefull artistic TOOL.
