No one can :-)  August quantizes on loop length. You have to think 
"looping with a tape delay" when working with Augustus. The Freeze Loop 
button is the one to address. Whenever the Freeze button is OFF the 
plug-in is recording and overdubbing into the loop.

I solved this problem (Live 4) by using one track for my audi input and 
monitoring (Monitor tag set to "On") and then I was recording clips (if 
this is what you mean by "looping in Live"?) on second track with the 
monitor tag set to "Auto", which applies Live's latency compensation to 
recorded clips.

Launching recorded clips works a bit different according to the 
preferences settings for Lunch Mode.
