That would also be a good separate thread though: "what first got you into looping".

End of off topic conversation!

Nice history to know, Stephen, but this thread, however, is about what you did BEFORE you were looping,
not the beginnings of your looping.

A tough one this.  My first looping experiments were done using a cassette that I’d spliced together, feeding the output into another tape deck, in 1981..  Very noisy but still!  Same year, I cruised garage sales and bought two reel-to-reel decks, and did some recording of that, still very noisy.  I tried using some bucket method chips from Radio Shack to make a looping device, but it turned out to be more of a delay-reverb.  After that I coughed up the money for an Ibanez delay that had (gasp) up to 1000ms delay, but what I wanted of course was Frippertronics with at least 4 seconds.
After that I experimented with repeated sequences on an SH-101, which I had to sell to make rent in ‘87.  And in 1992 I bought my first DigiTech 7.6 Time Machine.  THAT was recordable, and not very noisy. Smile
