Working with loops in the 1960s

If you thought working with loops was invented by Ableton or maybe labourus reel-to-reel tape splicing of the past, check this out:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrXtmKGkSa4]
Mellotrons where all over the prog rock albums in the 60-70s but disappeard when the digital samplers came (Fairlight, Emulator, Synclavier etc) in the 80s. But Mellotron provided more than strings, flutes and organ presets. As shown in the video above loops with rythm tracks where also available.
IK Multimedias SampleTron includes also these loops if you’re into retro loops:   <a href=”http://www.ikmultimedia.com/sampletron/“>
