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.)
