Yes. In Live it's very easy to resample any loop or mix of loops.  
Simply set the track input to "Resampling", record enable the track  
and trig the slot where you want to place the clip. In my Mac setup  
with Live and Augustus Loop I usually keep one Live track instantly  
set up for resampling. After having resampled you can drag the clip  
with the mouse to another track that maybe has a more suitable  
effects setting.

Oh yes! "The other way"....?  Isn't that the main reason people want  
to run loopers as VST/au plug-ins in Live? Live has excellent effects.
