You're probably right about that (I have no programming skills either).
But Live IS a host application, not a VST plug-in. Let's see what they
crammed into L4! The online looping community will once again be
cooking with all kinds of workaround hints ;-)
It seems as the Abletons are watching the forum quite closely. Once I
posted there about a quantization bug (regarding odd time measures) I
found in Live 3.0 and after some days I got a mail from HQ requesting a
more detailed bug report, which I then filed. So my hopes are that live
looping functions like "1st loop", "external midi access to sample/clip
parameters" etc will make it into the application as soon as they get
the time to implement it. Probably it's not topping the list, though.
All the best
