Re: R: "Loop" interacting with the rest of the music.

I think that new Roland Variphrase Processor is going to make some
interesting headway into just this sort of thing.  Realtime control over
pitch, length, and 'groove'.  Expensive?  yes.  Scary Possibilities?

ProTools has been seen as a way to make musicians with no talent sound like
superstars.  I think we have another culprit here on the horizon.  Talent?
Only $2700 buck away! We don't need no stinking talent!
