tools (4-track tape recorder looper...)

speaking of using your tools (as nemoguitar posted)-
i played around w/ my tascam porta 05 4-track tape recorder as a 
looper this past weekend and actually recorded a couple of things to 
my fostex mr8.

i basically had my whole rack setup feeding into the tascam, then the
tascam headphones out into my fostex mr8. the great thing is it sounded
pretty good. w/ the counter i could record a 20 sec tape loop, remove it
from 'record' and go to play and the loop would play and i could play w/
it or add my other looping things to it. i would add use stuff from my
dod d12 for other longish (up to 12 sec)loops and i even played w/ using
my old digitech dsp256xl for that short 1.5 sec loop--those got real 
kind of fun. it sort of reminded me of the 2 classic loop things i 
remember reading from dt (interactive recording sessions w/ myself-a 
and rfripps comments about his "frippertonics" is the best way he knew of
making a lot of noise (again a paraphrase), i certainly made a lot of noise
w/ the 20 sec tape loop and all my other loop tools, and it all recorded
to one track of my digital recorder. i then mixed down to my cd recorder, 
just be a few weeks til i finish filling that cd up. so who knows, 
it's probably
a lot of noise......my share for today....
