Wow! Thank you! I have a certain feeling that this was an extremely
valuable advice :-D  Maybe I should buy Reaktor and make my own Dream
Looper then? 

I've been lobbying around a little for the sake of future software
loopers and it seems that most developers have a problem with estimating
the eventual market. It's not a project you can start on a hobby level,
I would guess, and this brings in the question of financing the
developing work. That's what I got both form Angus Hewlett at fxpansion
and Hubert Pietrzykowski at PSP. PSP even said:

...etc etc. Oh well, guess I have to look around for some Reaktor
financing strategy... ;-)

All the best
