I've seen singles and duos, or even full bands, play with backing tracks, and I've seen performers that do true looping (my definition), and the latter is more spontaneous, interesting and much preferred.
Alright, let the tomato throwing begin. ;^) On 24-Mar-14 2:38 PM, Sylvain Poitras wrote:

I personally come from a tradition that puts more emphasis on performance and views recording as a way of documenting that performance. My use of looping follows that tradition by using loopers as instruments to be performed. I may well be wrong, but it doesn't seem quite the same as preparing a track using loops or hitting a button to trigger a clip. Having done all of those things, I personally find it very different. Note that I do not mean to imply that we should only discuss livelooping on this list. We probably don't need to sidetrack this discussion further, let's agree to disagree on this one ;) Sylvain
