Re: reaktor, MSP, etc

talk talk talk. Like I said, I'm tired of talk. I want to see results. 
show me a serious looper made with Reaktor. How about yours?

I keep hearing the promise of greatness and never seeing it in the result. 
All of the loopers I've seen built this way were very limited and 
amateurish, and had very few modern looping functions. I'm beginning to 
think that is all I will ever see from this modular do-it-yourself 
approach. Is it a false prophet? If I'm wrong, please show me. That's all 
I'm asking.
