I have the Augustus Loop demo and I love it so far.I haven't tried to
incorporate it into live looping though.
When recording a clip into Live Is there a way for the loop to start
playing right after you stop the recording?

Can't you just use an external pedal such as the FCB1010 that I use for
the tap tempo? I know that one works with the computer's keys. Also,
can't you use an expression pedal for the pitch?

Hmm...I'm gonna have to check this out. Something is up with Emagic EMI
2|6 audio interface along with Live. It was unusable in Live 2.
Tack så mycket.
