The Pink Pony is on Ludlow, but he didn't give an address
(Ludlow just below Houston if I remember...)

Was there some reason behind the dual-processor?

Hmm.  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!

Gemini has a pretty bad reputation.  People seem to like
Numark, here's an interesting looking one...


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.
