actually the thing people have asked for for years is multiple tracks of
**different lengths**, which Repeater doesn't do. Bob Sellon's mythical
jamman upgrade does that, as does Emmanuel Perille's DJRND2 and DJRND3.
Emmanuel also was doing stereo and multi-track, multi-length loopers quite
a while ago, long before Electrix. He even has patents on it.
Eventide boxes have also been used for multi-track and stereo loops for
quite a while, and people using MSP and kyma have also done these things.
So I would say "evolutionary" perhaps. Revolutionary, no.

and in that case, you can have different lengths, with a variety of
for syncing them to each other or having them unsynchronized, letting
either one be the clock master for the other, etc., even letting different
people control them. You don't have those options with any other looper.

Maybe for you, but definitely not for me! (I don't think I qualify as
"starting" any insanity either. Just inciting more of it.)
