New to the (awesom) list after wonderful "bass looping festival" in san jose-- wow!, just spent the day messing with karlette and other pseudo looping caca on cubase cause i don't have any looping hardware yet but otherwise totally motivated by the bass looping experience, any dedicated VSt looping plug ins exist-say that will record loops from a midi sustain pedal??? Used to loop 1/4 inch tape on 4 tracks with paper over the erase head of one of them or a variable resistor and a wood block for a pedal and the other 4 track about 20 feet awy with an extra reel suspended from a boom stand to support the loop midway. While i respect your suggestion, I have seen some of the damage even the mist(which is exuded for days after seemingly drying) from superglue can do to plastics and metal (although it could be argued that there are adhesives on splicing tape-another good reason to get better at minimizing the gap)and would just practice making better splices. It can be done "seamlessly" with practice for sure.
