Any other thoughts on how to put some fresh, (relatively) unpredictable
or at least systemic experimentation into looping?
Sounds like a job for Max, Opcode/IRcam's MIDI programming environment, 
can apparently detect and/or analyse audio via an Audiomedia card, I
understand...or rather I DON'T understand, but betcha one of the folks on 
lofty max list could set up something like what you describe...there's also
SuperCollider, an amazing real-time synth and audio processor for the Power
Mac (whose downloadable demo is a free sonic trip NO audio-minded PowerPC
owner should overlook!). And of course, who knows what couldn't be done 
cSound, a Kyma box, or even an Eventide DSP4000, were money and audio
engineering expertise no object...
