I notice that no one brought up FreeWheeling in this thread.

"FreeWheeling is an audio tool for live looping. It provides a highly
configurable, fluid user interface for instrumentalists to capture loops
in real-time. Based on the JACK, ALSA, and SDL libraries, it integrates
with FluidSynth, a software synthesizer."


Personally I just use Live as a master mixer/effects host (the excellent
builtin ones plus NorthPole) for my guitar, while a friend plays a VST
instrument.  I've never touched the sequencing part.  But many people
use it as a live looper...
