Thanks Rainer and Luis for the recommendation. I've finally got completely fed up with my own M-Audio Firewire 410 ........(anyone wanna buy a cheap one? <mirthless chuckle> and need to invest in something new. Also, and I can't reveal details yet, but we are working on some very cool new functionality for the LP-1 along the lines of manipulating the loops in different kinds of rhythmic ways. We've actually been working on this for a bit of time (and before this current thread about Mobius scripting fun) but it all will dovetail beautifully with what's being created there. And yes, it really was the EDP that took the concept of a live looping box and made it into an instrument. I think great kudos need to go out to Matthias Grob, all the people who worked so hard on the software for that ground breaking instrument and, especially, Andre LaFosse, who really got in and innovated some very cool ways of using that software. Claude Voit was also doing very cool, looper as instrument work back in the day. I have to say, that I just love this community, for not only it's wonderful non-competitive and communal spirit but also for it's constant desire to innovate. I really feel like we are all part of something really tangible!
