I have done this with two loopers and liked it very much too. It reminded
me of someone dancing on a ship that crosses the waves of another ship...

Did not understand this one. The other looper would run at the same loop
time? or with such a "integer" relationship of different number of beats?
Does it create a "stereo" effect, or what is the tweak about it?
