As someone brand new to looping, I find it fascinating what's happening to 
my timing without
the presence of the metronome that I use when I'm doing midi recording.  
My playing seems to
getting much more freeform.  Twice within the last week I recorded loops 
that after-the-fact
I discovered were in 7/4 time.  I'm usually a very 3/4, 4/4 type (once in 
a great while, 5/4
or even 11/8 <g>).  It's very cool to find that looping hardware is 
leading me down new
musical paths  :)
