OH! OK. Yes. I see what you're saying. I totally agree. (how about
that for a 180?) A lot of times I'm just using an ebow and a wah.
What's worse is when you're looping all over the place, processing your
loops like mad, and what do people want to know about? The $149 AirFX.
I think what it boils down to is this: Looping doesn't seem interesting
to most musicians when explained or experienced. You've really just got
to do it to love it. I could be wrong. Maybe there's something about
us that predisposes us to this, but I don't think so.
