I had a problem once or twice.
When trying to copy a rhythmic Vortex loop onto the edps it was hard
to get the first attack of the loop,
and in the past I sometimes had a problem when playing.
...but now somehow the problem doesn't happen.
I guess that the mind can compensate, and move the foot
just a little bit early.

The mind and body have so many latencies already,
(and jitter?) , so somehow we manage to compensate
for those.
Not only is there the time to send a "command" to the foot to
make the button press, but also there's a long delay
from the time a sound enters the ear till we become conscious of it.
Around 100ms! (or something like that).

This leaves us with 2 possible conclusions

1) "Software loopers" running on computers are usable for music.

2) Humans, who lack a RTOS, are unsuitable for playing music
