I feel compelled to point out that i'm not sure about the others you 
mentioned, but Klaus Schulze was definitely doing the "time lag 
accumulator" looping thing with tape machines. there's actually a 
picture here: http://www.klaus-schulze.com/photos/8402.htm  it's behind 
him, in a road case constructed for the task.

and even though Tangerine Dream namechecks old Karlheinz, Klaus went 
ballistic on this journalist when he asked him if Cage, Riley, and 
Stockhausen were influences:
