At one time the unquantised version was all the rage.

There are many differences, but as to whether those differences are
relevant to an individual audience member I've no idea.
What appeals to me is the ability to create a dialog between
loop and (usually) guitar.
Also the ability to produce a radically different sound
to the usual available pallet without carrying any more
The only time I've had potential audience decide looping
wasn't for them on technical grounds was due to them
being convinced that the loop would be static and unchanging,
and that this would be boring for them.
