I've got the Torn instructional videos, and he demonstrates a lot of his 
playing techniques.  He makes several of the loops you're referring to 
with a PCM-42 with 20 seconds of delay.  A lot of volume pedal work, a 
little compression, distortion and phase-shifting on the input signal.  
He locks down the loop, and sends that through a Digitech harmonizer set 
to a fifth or an octave above, and runs the whole thing through a PCM-70 
for a really big  reverb.  He may also use a reverse reverb, it's been a 
while since I watched the video.  The PCM-42 can also be set to randomly 
set the modulation section, resulting in further rapid pitch shifts, 
which the reverb smooths out.
