RE: Looper for minimal music

I think the Elektron Oktatrack would be perfect for what you describe.. it can loop as it is now and Elektron has pronised that it will have a dedicted looper machine pretty soon.. 

With the Octatrack you can almost veiw the orignal loop or sample as a "waveform" and the machine as a synth that can make a guitar sound like birdsong, stomping elefants or whatever you can or can't imagine.. 

I LOVE the octatrack..
