If you want to correct your data, please email me off-list.  At this point,
the general consensus seems to be - if you currently own it, and commonly
use it specifically for looping (vs. simple echo/delay) - it's in your

I have taken down the HTML table version of the data for now.  Instead, I'm

Right now the numbers say that 80 people own 251 pieces (that's over 3 
of hardware or software that they use to loop.  There are 60 unique
devices/programs listed, but the most significant representation (% of
owners with that device) seems to be from about 7 devices:  EDP (50%),
Repeater (30%), DL-4 (30%), Jamman (15%), Kaoss Pad (15%), Ableton Live
(10%) and the Boomerang (10%).  Below that, ownership drops below 10% of

piece, we're up to >$100,000 among 80 people.  Zowie.
