Seriously! Not to beat a dead horse, but a hardware Mobius host (even
if it was just a mini-PC that boots straight into Mobius with onboard
audio/midi i/o) would be incredible.|
Well, the hardware version wouldn't munch up your CPU. So you
could use Ableton Live and all its goodies. And Mac users could use it.

Oooh, and it would be even better if it had 8 stereo EDPs that
could run in or out of sync with eachother...
Oh wait, we're describing Mobius again...
I'll tell you exactly what the ultimate looper is. Save you
Essentially it would be a stereo (or even surround)
Echoplex. All the same functions.
Rock solid syncing capabilities. No drifting!!
Custom foot controller similer to the FCB1010, except
smaller. With 10 or so built in options of layouts. But also capable of
10 gigs of storage.
Small Bluetooth LCD display screen that can be mounted to a
Firewire, or USB connections.
Balanced and Unbalanced outs.
VST interface so the entire unit can be placed into DAW's
and be controlled seamlessly.
1 Rack space
Free 24 hour support line.
Now, get busy.
