Re: two minds

You miss the point (Mark begins crusade) a saved "static" loop isn't 
what I'm talking about.  I'm talking about the ability to record what 
you are playing live (quite unlike a sequenced MIDI loop) Save it to a 
new loop, continue fade/adding to your loop for hours if need be, then 
going back to your original saved loop, but now have it play back 
synched to a totally different tempo.
