(oops...sent this last night from the wrong email account and it bounced back) i cut the cord today and performed for the first time with no hardware at all!! just Ableton Live and 3 instances of SooperLooper. i only had to play one song, so it was a good opportunity to try it out. it all worked! it was very satisfying to have all my gear (with the exception of the FCB1010) in a backback. someone from the FCB users group is removing the expression pedals for me now, so when thats done...small city. i can't wait. my next fantasy is to show up for gigs on a moto guzzi, with the cello in a sidecar and i'll run all the looping software on an iphone.
