I've met three other loopers in the north New Jersey area, who are not on
list. I'd put one in the b)haven't heard about it group and the other two
the c)no time group. Although I imagine that those two may be checking
community more soon. We've become big fans of each other's music, and are
starting to develop something of a scene/community in our area. One
who came to my last show and also uses an older EDP, remarked that I used
EDP much more comprehensively then he did. He basically uses it just for
ambient loops. He had all sorts of questions for what I was doing with
next loop, and substitute functions. I told him that 90% of what I do is a
direct result of things that I've learned from members of this list. His
interest in loopers delight certainly seemed to increase at that point.
