Yes. For the track below I mocked up a related meta instrument idea by
two components: The Expert Sleepers live sampler Cross Fade Loop Synth
and a simple pattern sequencer of Bidule's. But the reason I call it
"a meta instrument" is that the pattern sequencer is set to switch
program on the same MIDI events I use for sped/rate shifting whatever
audio I layer in Mobius - so the bubbling sequencer line plays a short
sample of my acoustic instrument in a pre programmed pattern that
always fits to the new pitch my looper is turned into. In the example
below a flute was used as source sound and the bubbling baseline is
what this setup added:

But unfortunately I could never get a sound free from clicks and other
noise artifacts on the 2.2 Macbook I was using then. I don't have time
now, or the creative need for it in a project, but at some time along
the future path I will definitely go back to using this thingy on a
better computer :-))
