Re: help wanted -- technique tips, please

>>The question is: without MIDI clicks, how can a loop be synced into music
>>with live drums?  I'm looking for new APPROACHES to this problem

Even drummer who are used to playing with some sort of click track can 
have problems hearing a loop clearly enough in a performance situation.  
We've found it helpful for the drummer to heavily eq the loop to insure 
that some sonic reference point comes through loud and clear.  If you 
were to listen to the monitor by itself, after this eq, it usually sounds 
undesirable, but for practical sync purposes it works pretty well.  It's 
amazing what a parametric eq can do when deployed in the mid-range
