RE: Vintage archtop looping video - Warren at EM2007

Yup, that was the perpetual work-in-progress. I was coding some things at
2AM the night before (naturally), so I didn't have as much under foot
control as I usually prefer - there was more computer keyboard interaction
than usual for me. But it was appropriate for the context - many people 
twisting knobs and the like.

And I think some of that resonating might have been going on through the
guitar body - fuzz and acoustic together tend to do that.  

Thanks for checking it out.

Thaks, I definitely enjoyed this! The video cam's built-in compressor  
sounds very good at the very beginning of the first part, I think.  
Gives the overall sound, live guitar plus looped guitar drone, a  
sitar-like feel :-) Like if the looped stuff were resonating  
sympathetically your played notes. If course it doesn't work that  
way, but that's how I hear it. BTW, was that your own custom built  
Max/MSP looper in action?
