Os, I'm also interested in faster response from Live when sync'ed to Midi
clocks. I requested it from them before Live 4 came out, and they said
they'd consider it, maybe via a "hi-res" sync mode or something. If you
or someone else puts up a post on Live's request forum, let us know and
we'll jump on it and add our voices in support.
