Good grief...$10K? Cripes. That's overkill,
eh? Get a top of the line macbook pro (spend at least $3000 and max
it out with options memory, fastest duo core processors, etc), a Fireface 800
audio interface, MAX/MSP, Reaktor, and all the additional VST effects you need
that you can't muster to create or find for MAX and Reaktor. I can't think
of anything else one would need for a steller looping system. You can replace
$10K of hardware with $5k of software and notebook, and not be stuck
with bunch hardware effects that you are bored of in 5 years. You just keep
evolving with Max and Reaktor. The only restriction is time and
creativity. And with MAX, you can host Mobius for free, or create your own
max looper, borrowing from some of us max loopers. Heck, you could use max
to host Reaktor and Mobius and nothing else and do the work of at
least $5K of hardware.

Subject: what gear to aquire?
what would be the most powerfull loop set up for a 10,000 spending
limit?...what units work best together?forgett the rc50(maybe just one for
kicks)...would it be best to use a powerfull machine like a looperlative/
edp in isolation...or...with a smorgasborg of other less powerfull
loopers?should i buy one or two of everything on the market and figure it out
for myself(most likely)...ease of set up is a high priority as im lazy and
repulsed by clutter...
maybe i could get some ideals if some of you folks posted your dream loop
my wet behind the ears dream set up would probaly look like this=
instruments----effects----dual edps---looperlative---laptop &
instruments----mixer(edps/looperlative in effect loop)---amps
noisemakers)----looperlative----amp ...........everything running
in sync but each instrument to its own amp
thanks, Danny nice the antichrist...
