As i can't afford a sampler, to loop drum beats or bass phrases i recently started cutting tape loops for my reel to reel. I was thinking of getting my hands on a couple more reel to reels and running loops of the same BPM thru delays, flangers, vibrato and envelope filter. Anyone else tried this kind of thing?

i think you'll have big problems keeping your loops synchronized if they are running on different tape machines. the approach could still be very interesting. we had some discussion about tape loops already in the "Lee Perry on 4 tracks" thread. (see the posts were Muslim Gauze is mentioned)

There are nuff reel to real machines that have sync fuctions. Like a lot of Revox machines. If you want to make loops on tape, you have to cut very precice to get them synced properly.

The Simms Watts Echo DEk can make tape loops as well as being a pretty good tape echo / reverb unit , i dont think any other machine can do this.

You can play mono loops of up to 15 feet or so on any space echo type of tape delay with the sound on sound feature. I would say use a multitrack reel to reel if you want multiple loops going at the same time and in sync though.
