and if one wants to explore (at least) *both* of those musical 
well then.....
thisall reminds me of why it's so nice to have the opportunity to utilise 
more than one type/brand of looper ---and why it's so great that there're 
more manufactured loop-devices available to choose from!--- as none of 
is built to be as multi-directional as one might like, which is probably 
it should be (like any other instrument), each of them offering their own 
perspective (& that of their designers).....
