My issue is lack of time.  I spend a long time on musical things
and if I make prerecorded things, it takes me forever to get one
loop right.  But if I learn to use the tools right then I can generate
music that's "just as good" on the fly.

So I dread stored loops -- a new can of worms, a new thing to
have to *do*!
