Well I don't think you mentioned specifically the "sample and clip 
parameters". You said you couldn't change the speed as well so I 
suppose I should have assumed you were talking about the previously 
mentioned parameters.

That's too bad that these aren't controllable by MIDI. Is there any 
explanation for that?

Anyone out there from Ableton reading this?

It would also be extremely great to be able to have clips created by 
themselves after one cycle of a loop is recorded.

I tried it on my Echo Layla24 (PCI). I'm having recording latency 
problems with this interface as well. For example, if I record a click 
and play it back with regular click you can hear a delay.

In the preferences the latency compensation does add up to 0ms.

Tack igen. Kul att prata med en svensk.
