Re: WHERE ARE THE OTHER LOOPERS?
I almost didn't reply to the loop equipment poll because I figured it was
just creating a bunch of mostly empty mail messages that most people
wouldn't care about.
Also, because not everyone here has the same definition of "looping" (as
evidenced by the fact that some listed their delays, and even samplers and
sequencing software as their looping devices) I figured there would be an
inevitable slew of emails debating what constitutes a looper and what the
definition of looping is.
I think it's good that I don't see some of the equipment people listed as
looping devices. It means that there is no ideological box around the
technology/technique quite yet, despite some peoples' misguided attempts to
Once you can define it and put it in a box, then it's dead. Take it to
academia and be done with it. Wait for the next wave of innovation to
happen and then box it up and take it to academia, too.
