Re: LOOPING FESTIVAL CALL TO ARMS!!!
Hi Richard, creating consciousness about live looping is a very pragmatic
proposal. Indian music has/can have much looping, when used judiciously.
Such Indian loops can be eminently suitable for jamming and World music,
My problem is: Which software will especially suit looping in Indian
[Tanpura, tabla, fast, repetitive Sitar passages etc.]
