RE: making the switch from Repeater to Ableton Live

 regarding the use of Multiply, Care must be taken to hit the multiply
function on the down beat of the loop, otherwise you will get unexpected
tempo changes. I also stopped using single button presses on My FCB1010 to
send more than one message, at a time. In my experience, sending too many
midi messages simultaneously is a sure way to tank my RPTR. Also, trying to
record after radically changing the tempo will also give you problems.
Lastly any  digital noise I had was cured by running the rptr in the 
loop of a mixer and engaging the input mute function. All of the noise and
latency related garbage was cleaned up by doing this.

If you think of it it, write me, do.

I've spent a lot of time trying to make the crashes happen and thereby
deduce my error and have narrowed to 2 events that occasionally are
followed by a crash. Now, I've done my share of software debugging and
realize that there must be a crucial event that is hidden to me because
I can't make the same sequence cause a crash every time.

In all cases controlling the Repeater with the FCB1010:

1) Sending a group of functions via one button press. The group
containing 1 or 2 PC messages and 1 or 2 CC messages. And, everytime,
that group has had RECORD in it. (If I remember. the one that I get to
"crash" the most frequently is RECORD + Set Feedback level to 80% + Pan
Trk 1&2). If a "successful" crash occurs, the metronome suddenly
becomes audible (and really, really, really loud!).

2) Using my midi pedal again to control the Repeater, I hit the
MULTIPLY function twice. The tempo of my already existing loop speeds

I have reprogrammed my FCB1010 to make sure I don't have anything
hidden in my patches.

I suppose an optimist (or software developer) would say that these
instances are really feature enhancements, because I get more
functionality than expected!
