Just install it and go to the Headspace site. Thomas Dolby's walk-through
examples include several looped audio parts. Also good examples of
interactive audio on a web page. They also have links to demonstration 
with more interesting stuff. I went to one created by a trip-hop dj that 
you control four parts of a mix, with the ability to change the audio
samples in different parts, as well as mixing and muting the different
channels. It was a blast! Another page let you essentially compose an
ambient piece interactively by starting up various audio samples and 
them loop or go in and out, or whatever., all by interacting with a graphic
on the page. It was all incredibly cool.

Another thing my girlfriend noticed, is that midi files from the web sound
fantastic through beatnik. I think they have their own sample library, 
replaces the crappy gm sounds we had through quicktime. I'm using it for 
web based audio now, and highly recommend it.
