Vanity Entry[edit]

Seems an obscure indie band is hardly "Noteworthy." To me, this passage smacks of vanity and most likely should be deleted. Mywhitedevil 13:51, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Plagerism?[edit]

How do we report plagerism? This article is identical to this article on answers.com ([1] -St. Jimmy

It's not plagerism. As you can clearly see, Answers.com provides information from Wikipedia through some sort of agreement I suppose. Shiranweber

Radio and samplers[edit]

the HHGG radio series used tape loops for effects -- we could mention the BBC Radiophonic Workshop here. Also, early samplers were tape loops, weren't they -- wasn't the Mellotron tape loops? -- Tarquin 16:52, 5 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Definition of Tape-Loops[edit]

The definition of tape loops being "rhythmic, musical" patterns is way too restrictive! Could someone come up with a better definition, please? Think noise loops, drone tones etc... Sawatzki

Comparison to sequencers?[edit]

I just wonder if there could be a section about how the idea of repeated sounds (loops) inspired the whole sequencer technique? I mean, basically, on a modern sequencer software, you can easily recreate and come up with very similar music to all those early minimalism music. --M1ck1 (talk) 06:39, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
