If the Vortex loop time is enough, 
2s mono
1s stereo
then it's as good as anything.

It doesn't introduce a glitch into the loop on its own.
...and you'd be able to create a drone with
subtle changes in it if you wanted.
...a bit of cyclic flanging/phase/chorus with a different
time length to the loop 
...if you like that sort of thing.

Actually, if you're into choir like chords the
Vortex is pretty incredible in this respect.

For non-degrading loops of up 5s stereo (not tap time)
on a budget go for the Behringer Virtualizer DSP2024.
