Re: Percussive Loopers

I knew this would bring a few wildmen out of the woodwork... "a fairly nice
array" might qualify as a slight understatement. ;-]

For the past three years I've been standing up, playing the Zendrum/Alesis
predominately in the role of a kit drummer, ala/Futureman. Only recently
(thanks to the Repeater) digging deeper into looping/textures/ambient.
Originally tried a DL4 with disappointing results. Now that I have the
Repeater I'm stoked! Looking forward to purchasing the 256mb CFC ASAP.

yea, wish I had bought a wavedrum way back when (they were available).

I do have a fairly nice array though:
v-drums, dm-pro, drumKat, Handsonic, Zendrum, (3) ASRX samplers, Yami 
K5000, Fizmo, Yami P200, Yami TX81Z, Obie Matrix 1K, Alesis QSR, Yami DJX &
Electrix (Repeater, MoFX, Filter Factory, Warp Factory), Electrix (EQ 
& Filter Queen), Alesis Air FX,
Big Briar Moogerfooger MF 102 ring Modulator, Mutron III, POD, Bass Pod, 
SUb Harmonic Synthesizer, Aphex aural exciter, BBE SOnic Maximizer, Lexicon
MPX 100, Drawmer Stereo Compressor/Limiter
PreSonus MP20, Behringer HA4400 HeadphoneAmp, Rolls RM203 Stereo Line 
Ashley 8 channel line mixer,
Behringer MX2642A Eurorack Mixer , Alesis Studio 12R 12-channel mixer, (2)
Behringer 48 point patchbays, (2) Mackier SRM450s, (2) Mackie SRS1500A
Powered 15  Subwoofers, (2) JBL EON 15P, miscellaneous other harware.

What I've really been digging lately is all the cool softSYNTHs and
Samplers: Battery, V-Sampler, Sample Tank, REAKTOR (a fave), TC Works
Mercury-1, rgcAudio PENTAGON, CrusherX, Abelton LIVE, Pro-52, FM-7, 
& Spektral Delay. Running these on either my Dell Laptop PIII 800, or my
Dell desktop PIV 1.9. AWESOME stuff.

I still want a Wave Drum though......
