The aim of this paper is to understand the hows and the whys of open-sourced DIY looping. To investigate this, we have conducted interviews with people who label themselves as loopers. We wanted to find out how long they have been using the system, what their overall thoughts on it were, how it compares to conventional treatment, and what impact it has had on their lives. This data has been thematically analyzed to help us find correlation between their answers. Furthermore, we have included relevant and recent research on the topic, to further shed light on the phenomenon.
