A 'wet only' looper is perfectly plausible. In fact, there was never any 
reason for it not to be - delays are affected by latency, because they

latency issues when changing something, such as ending a loop recording,

I believe there is already an echoplex emulations programmed in Reaktor. I 
have yet to try it.
