That sounds FUN.  I used to run my drum machine
through the Electrix Vocodor with great results.

I started listening to progressive stuff via people
like Fripp, and found Bill Laswell because he did
stuff with Brian Eno (On Land).  Some of his stuff
(Praxis) IS totally progressive/jazz/metal.  Check out
the first Praxis album, I bet you'll love it.  After
Praxis I bought his Cymatic Scan disc and I was
hooked.  There's a lot of good stuff (looping and non
looping) from this man.
