I guess Mobius could have that pretty soon if some sort of user  
interface cold be developed for its Shuffle function. Now it has four  
pre defined slice-and-mangle algorithms. Think about how cool if the  
user could

- Chose the "grid" for slicing (divide loop length with any number,  
making sure odd timings will be possible).
- Chose the treatment applied for each slice (transpose, filtering,  

Other applications that have interesting interfaces for loop slice  
mangling are pHATmatik PRO, Reason (Dr Rex Loop Player), ReCycle...  
The trick is to apply it in real-time on the first loop playback of a  
live input.

Maybe we should stop posting here about this, so Jeff can cut down on  
his, recently quite massive, educational postings and use a couple of  
hours for coding? Eh.....  ;-)
