There is an audio research centre in Paris which is part of the
university, and when I sneaked in for a visit a while back, and
explained what I did, they in fact did something similar back in the
70's also. They also used DEC's, and I know that they used PDP-8's
primarily for their audio synth work.
I'll see if I can try and find out some more info.
I think the first non-digital live looping was early man shouting and
screaming into a cave....into a cave.....into a cave....<pop>
