Re: Tabletop loopers

No problem if you're not a software person.  Someone's done if for  
you.  He's a very nice man, he gives it away for free.


Or if you want a more "tape" style...

One day I dream of having a Lemur...  but then I remember both my  
hands are usually busy with a guitar anyway.  If only humans were  
monkeys instead of apes we'd have prehensile tails!
