But can it do any of that in real time? I don't know that I've seen
anything on a pc or mac that could do serious real-time looping. Lots of
software lets you set up loops if you are willing to sit there patiently
pointing and clicking. Not a lot of room for spontaneity or improvisation,
though. Especially if you want to create loops live in a performance.
