RE: very special floor-based looper
We're on the verge of some nice ultra-mobile PCs hitting the market. It
would be interesting to see if they will have the power/features you need,
but then they'd still need an audio interface etc... oh well...

You're absolutely right! except that the black box being discussed, once
finished, may not aspire to poking all nite long, as it should be
configured as a ready-to-use thingy. At least AFAIC, but YMMV..

Point taken. Doing sys/netadm, I prefer being off that hook in my spare
time. Then of cause there's this guitar rig.. and the studio stuff..
The real problem here is that a finished/shopped product only allows us
to dive in so an so deep. The PC solution on the other hand.. difficult
to just do what's needed and say "yup, it works, now close the toolbox"
