Re: Re: should we name it echoing ?

Andy id love to hear this new technique of yours man!
Your CD is full of inovative ideas that im still
learning from it.
I guess what i see lately is that there is a change in
the way people are looping, perhaps due to the change
in looping technology.When i first joined this list
about 9 years ago 99% of the looping i heard was
"soundscapes" and although i do love it i wanted to
hear more song structure looping as well as loops
synced to samplers and drum machines,i still find this
very challenging to make it creative and dont hear it
too often from folks in this list.Claude Voits and
some of the older stuff from Lafosse are one of the
few ones ive heard.
If anybody is doing creative stuff with the EDPs and
Akai MPC1000 please let me know!
