Re: Confusion over "Looping" Was: Re: This looper list

I am very happy with what i see on this list. But apparently those who keep
leaving and are not smart enough to find their way out are the ones who 
likely aren't doing anything interesting or innovative to begin with. I'd
much rather see those of us speaking about how we can bring our music and
our processors to their limit of usefulness. By the way...anyone who want's
to see some looping, check out ProjeKct Two when they come to town. It was 
blast for me.
