     Just my 2 cents... but using loops in the studio environment or 
performing with any sort of prepared media, while a valid use of 
technology and a popular option, isn't looping to me. Looping is all about 
watching a performer create a musical tapestry right in front of you.
     There is nothing, and then the performer makes a sonic work of art. 
When done by a talented and creative musician, it's breathtaking.

     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. ;^)
