Well, a lot of the people here are hardware loopers, grabbing loops "on-the-fly" as we play... I used to use Vision on the Mac but that's an orphaned program. I'm looking at MOTU's Digital Performer 3.0 when it comes out (finally)... but I need pretty heavy MIDI tools, sounds like you don't use MIDI at all! >I want to do loops, >love drum n bass...

People seem to like Numark, here's an interesting looking one... <http://www.8thstreet.com/Product.asp?ProductCode=4700&Category=DJ_Gear> I fear this list won't really be too much good for this, though... not everyone here is a player who loops on the fly but most of the discussion seems to center on that. /t that was fast .......all legal games of chess <http://solveChess.com/chess?refresh=0>...... .....programmer's documentation <http://solveChess.com/doc>..................
