I heard that at one point, Fripp was using an Oberheim Echoplex.  Is that 
still a part of his rig, or has he abandoned it in favor of 12 more T.C. 

As far as going beyond Fripp, what are you thinking of more 
specifically?  As Michael Peters has mentioned, some of the stuff he's 
doing recently is very very difficult to identify as real-time loop 
music, even though that's what it is.
