As you say, it probably depends on how you're using your looper.

Try looping a steady flute note.  I could easily see somebody building up a
drone of steady flute tones as a "valid" musical use.

IMHO: The flute is nearly a perfect sine wave.  (Ok, it is not nearly
perfect if you put it on a spectrum analyzer, but it's pretty darn close
compared to other instruments.)
