Re: 1st Loop Workaround in Ableton's LIVE 4.0

> I fucking love their native plugins...............lol.

agreed.  the grain delay is bad ass, and their compressor II is quite 
useful as well.  Could you imagine a Line6 DL4 shaped box with JUST the 
Live Grain Delay in it?  With knob  control of the pitch, spray and all of 
that?  Talk about sonic mayhem potential...  I'd drop cash for that in a

ableton's official board.  accessed through the website.

no, not anything noticeable.  I'm using an M-Audio Omni I/O with the 
buffer at a fairly low setting.  256 or 384 samples, i think.  I'm on a 
Carrillon P4, 512ram, Win2K.

> Additionally,  have you thought about just buying an actual Rhodes?

yes...along with an Actual Fender Vibro-Champ, Fender Deluxe Reissue, Vox 
Jaguar, some sort of actual tape echoplex/space echo unit, and on and on 
and on.  But then the limits of my studio room begin to bring reality into 
the picture, as well as the concept of having to work until i'm a very old 
man because of all of this mid-life sillyness!!!

Yes, i think my Z8 purchase may actually be one of the poorer monetary 
decisions I have made in my life.  I got a great deal on it new, but I 
still shoved a 256 stick of Ram and a $300 output expansion board in it, 
on top of the purchase price.  Who knows...it's ALWAYS going to do it's 
job as a sampler.  Perhaps it will collect some dust for a bit and then 
get reincorporated later.
