Surprised nobody else has bird-dogged these yet, but...
There's a four-page spread specifically on Looping, starting page 62
in the February 2006 (#96) issue of UK's Computer Music magazine.
It's currently on the stands now in the US, but we get it a month
behind the Brits. More on the magazine at
As is their typical writing style, the first two pages are dedicated
to the background and explanation of the technique, while the last
two are a guided tutorial showing you how to do it yourself.
The Looping overview is pretty good, incorporating a brief history as
well as some useful basic techniques for which Looping is used and a
boxout on recommend listening. Not only is there a prominent mention
of Looper's Delight in the overview section, but there's even a
thumbnail graphic of the LD homepage (FYI side-note to Kim: you
really can't read a darn thing on the webpage if it's shrunk down --
other than the fact that you're a supporter of Sonic Foundry).
The tutorial actually uses Loopy Llama (
http://www.rekliner.com/?PageID=14 ) from our own Chris Kline.
There's also a boxout on free Looping software available on the net
which features, amongst others, blurbs on Jeff Larson's Mobius (
http://www.zonemobius.com ), the aforementioned Loopy Llama, and
Expert Sleepers' Meringue ( http://www.expertsleepers.co.uk ). They
include a side-mention of Os' Augustus Loop as well, but since the
focus of the boxout is "free software" I don't think they could
really focus on that one in particular.
And in other magazine news, the current issue of Musicworks (Issue
93, Fall 2005) has a very nice two-column review of the Ambient Ping
events frequently posted here. More information on the magazine is
available at http://www.musicworks.ca , while you can find out more
