RE: Circular Logic In-Time, live midi clock sync possibilities

Thanks for your reply, Per. 

So, assuming I can get Live 4's audio and quantized clip record/playback
functions to conform in realtime to an external midi clock sync source
generated from audio, I can then have an audio clip in Live timesqeezed
or stretched automatically to play back in perfect sync with the onstage
band. Does that sound correct? I haven't done any timestretching in Live
4 yet. If I can get Circular Logic "In-Time" setup as the clock master,
then I should be ready to create some seriously heavy onstage sonic

Yes, Ableton Live would be fine for what you want to do. A Repeater, 
hardware unit, will also do the job. But I'm not sure about the best 
way to keep the tempo; either you tap a midi pedal with your foot or 
you extract it from the drummer with some audio to midi converting 

All the best
