Re: Midi looper

When I said "would be all over", what I think I meant was "could be made to warm up to...."
It's usually pretty easy to explain how something did come into existence, but hard to offer anything but speculation as to why something doesn't exist. Perhaps it's the familiarity and predisposition with sequencing/programming in that arena. It would just seem to me that the intuitive approach and spontaneity that looping (as opposed to sequencing) affords, could do well in said techno culture.
Plus you were being sarcastic about big companies being in touch with anything, right?

Subject: Midi looper

The looper community is small enough that I can understand manufacturers
not leaping on this opportunity.  The techno-raver-dj community that you
mention is another matter, however.  If, in fact, that bunch would "be
all over" a midi looper, why hasn't one of the big hardware
manufacturers come out with such a device ????
