Well, but Ableton Live managed to do this in a perfect way. As there's
so much 4->floor music around this is quite an accomplishement. But
you're right, that Live is useless without loops/samples and you'll
have to resort to other tools for creating them. That's why Robert
Henke of Ableton also is quite an expert in Max/MSP and often has it
running in the background of Live, as he told me once.

Hhm, I never thought about that. Is this related to that LINE thing
("Lysergic... Is Not an Emulator")?
