Re: a usable laptop set-up (audio clip)

Hi Per this is an interesting topic, to me as you know I would like to 
be able to loop with just my laptop.
I hope you don't mind if I ask you some questions about your general 
approach as I have been looking for a musically interesting(to me) and 
reliable way of looping on a laptop. I have just bought live 4 and so 
will be checking this myself as I had no results with augustus and 
logic other than crashes!
1st off love the demo clips, guess thats whats got me writing!
You are using Augutus loop in ableton live 4?
I see you used multiple example of augustus loop in live i.e. having a 
2 channel looper (2 augustus loops)
How do you find controlling them with your fcb 1010? any limitations? 
good working practices you have come accross? i.e. how are you 
controlling the two different examples of augustus loop, different midi 
I love the way you have assigned the pitch to footpedals sounds great.

I am assuming from your post that you are changing the pitch of the 
loop in augustus loop is that correct and if so what are you using for 
sync settings in augustus? have you got it sync'd to live and if so 
what happens when you start changing the pitch of loops.

Interesting hearing what you said about pluggo stuff I gave up with it 
in os9 as i wasn't that impressed, it was all a bit too glitchy at that 
time in my life, will check it again.
