> Hey Loopers - Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
> In November of 2003, we did a survey of the LD list members to find out 
> what devices they were using for live looping.  It was very informal and 
> pretty disorganized (I think I still have a headache...), but I tallied 
> the results into a spreadsheet and posted a PDF version of those results 
> in the Looper's Delight File Library 
> (http://www.loopers-delight.com/files/).
> It's now two years later, and I figured it might be time to try it 
> again.  This time, we won't clutter up the list (or my brain!) with the 
> responses, but instead I'm preparing an online survey form to capture 
> them.  The survey will be anonymous (unlike 2 years ago), but the form 
> WILL use cookies to ensure that surveys are only submitted once.  Well, 
> once per computer - but what would really be the point in trying to 
> screw with this survey? :)
> I'll host the survey, and I give my personal assurances that the data 
> written/read by the cookies will only be used to block multiple 
> submissions.  I will NOT provide this information to anyone else, and 
> cannot see the contents of your cookie myself.
> I've started to prepare the form with the following loopers listed (see 
> bottom).  I'll take any suggested additions into the list until 
> Saturday.  At that point, I'll post the survey and leave it open for 
> about a month so that we get the maximum number of respondents.
> You won't be able to "write in" a looper once I post the survey.  I will 
> continue to take offline (emailed) requests for off-list loopers after 
> the survey starts, but I will have to add them to the results manually 
> at the end of the survey.  So please - take a look at this list and ask 
> me to add anything YOU are using as a looper that is not represented.  
> Part of the fun of this survey is to see what other unusual devices are 
> being used.
> Finally - last year we had some confusion about what to include in the 
> inventory.  Some folks were posting gear that they used for loop 
> *mangling* or pre/post loop effecting.  There was also some confusion 
> about "samplers" vs. "live loopers".  I propose that:
> - we do NOT try to inventory effects devices used for per/post loop
> - we do NOT try to inventory units used to playback prerecorded loops or 
> samples
> Instead, if those things are of interest to others, we can start a new 
> thread and post them - or perhaps I can setup another survey in the 
> (distant) future to capture that data.
