You're not telling what you want to do, so it might be difficult to  
give an accurate answer. The typical way of looping in SooperLooper  
is rather difficult to do in Live (I would say "impossible" if you  
want do do it fluently with an improvisational touch). With that I  
mean starting out by creating a loop of your playing - which also  
defines the tempo and - then overdubbing many musical layers into  
that loop and also starting other loops in parallel, eventually of  
different length.

But, on the other hand you can run SL as a plug-in in Live and then  
the question is if you're doing it in Live or if you're doing it in  
SooperLooer ;-))
