I don't have specific experience with Usine, I did look at it a number of years ago but decided on Bidule ( http://www.plogue.com/products/bidule ) instead. Concept wise, they seem like very similar programs, an environment where you can channel your signal through various vst programs. I ended up with bidule because it seemed a bit easier for me to understand, but I do know that lots of people use usine. In bidule I've had some very elaborate setups routing various signals down through Mobius and building a great soundscape. I'm sure that you can do the same with Usine. You might try getting hold of Per, he has had much more extensive and indepth usage.
good luck, I found that going with that modular sort of environment opened up a whole different world of looping for me.
