I understand what it is you're looking to do, and I have known a number of 
who've used Emu samplers live to great successes...  but they usually 
worked for
months ahead of time creating their own samples in a studio environment, 
blending the pre-prepared samples with live sound.....

        as far as new loopers,   I think I heard somebody say something 
Lexicon doing something....   It only makes sense, If the JamMan is 
and currently is gaining value on the used market at an astrnomical rate 
wouldn't lexicon want to create a "new" technology to counteract Oberheim's
success with the  Echo-complex?   I don't know anything about all that bs, 
punk kid is cuttin out.   Nice talking with you.
