Re: Reaktor

After looking around at Reaktor 4, yes, it would be difficult to implement 
looper without multiple tape deck modules! But in Reaktor 5 they have the 
Reaktor Core capability which lets you get down to a lower level with the
function blocks. There is a memory read and write module that looks like it
would work, because you can read and write from different locations
simultaneously. I have Reaktor 5 but can't use it till my NeKo gets here. 
I'm anxious to try it.
