Ok ....i understand this...and i think it's very important to use the
machines as ''tools'' for improve creation and expand our ''minds'' :  )
...but i tryin to say something like this: i can loop a patern of the James
Brown's song ''Sex Machine" guitar riff  in my machine to jam with or 
...but i know ''how to''  and ''can'' play it for long very ''tigth'' with 
drumer and a  bassist grooving ... i think this is very important for my
''standard minimal set of phisical skills'' ... and really :  i'm not
definetely a  ''virtuoso'' ...  :   )  obviously i'm not triyng to say that
everybody must play with this '' standard minimal set of phisical skills''
... Music must be FUN , loop must be FUN , and everybody can play/loop and
ENJOY  freely ...This machines are there for pleasure and joy. I'm sure the
people who project them, think first on this item. But  i think a serious
(not necessarily ''profesional''...) musician must be  ready to play with a
minimum amount of accuracy. And of course , my machine helps me a lot to
play better and practise in a very funny way. Good health !
