I seem to think saving up for Live is something to think about still.
For my software setup it works quite well. A midi foot pedal, keyboard
controller and my guitar replaces a rack of stuff I use. With Live you
can really do alot. I think most people may miss alot you can do
with looping in live. Just gotta think it out first.

Other than that Sooperlooper I'd suggest also.
If you go on the linux side, try seq24 then.
