Howzabout this - by introducing tuning flaws across a playing
surface/range, you more accurately portray the differences between
instruments when looping?  What I mean is, you might get a neater
"separation" between loop tracks if you're *slightly* out of tune on the
next pass.  It sounds a lot less contrived than a chorus pedal, and
contributes no small part in the phenomenally lush sound of an orchestral
string section...


who likes his guitar the way it is
and never ever noticed it being out of tune
