Coming out of my post loopfestival coma that I always seem to go into each year, I noticed a really surprising thing at the loopfestival this year: From being on this list I just assumed that the festival would be increasingly dominated by laptop live loopers but by a cursory count (and this is very cursory) I think I only saw three or four people using laptops in their sets. Everybody else (35-40 artists) were using hardware. I was shocked by this. Maybe the hardware people on the list just aren't as vociferous or as prolific as posters as the software people. What do you'all think?
