I disagree.
Couldn't someone run a labtop (i.e. G3 powerbook) with running Digital 
Performer's P.O.L.A.R. software (performance orietated looping audio 
recording) fullly equiped with a recording gate and automatic loop 
functions and achieve more because of the computer's memory and other 
feature's. It's an expensive proposition but one I'm looking into because 
the idea of having a portable studio and synthesizer and looping brain is 
holy grail right now.  The problem I foresee with POLAR's recording gate 
function is not so much start times but stop times.  But then again you 
could bypass this function and manually trigger start and stop times.
