The Vortex does this, very nice for having loops fill the space between
phrases, but not crowd out the live sound, But what I'm talking about is
having the live playing overdubbed into the loop, recording over/mixing
with the looped material at a volume determined by the dynamics.

together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
