If you've got a spare drive or partition, you could clone your whole system using Carbon Copy Cloner. http://bombich.com/ccc That way, if your main drive fails, you just boot right off the clone and you're up and running in a few minutes. Time Machine is nice, but it's not an exact copy of your driv...

ethios4, that's how my live set that I posted works also.
Pretty dope if it works for midi as well!

I used to love my old boss dd-3's hold function, but wished it could tempo sync.
Now I have it :)

Now if Ableton would just wrap it all up in a plugin, and add some nice options.......

six_o_clock_crow, The set I posted can do what you're saying about recording to separate clips as well, that's what the "ClipLoop" tracks are for. They are setup to record the output of "LoopPlay", so you can record to a clip at any point you'd like, then manipulate the clip.

Funny thing, I haven't had much time to try it either. I tested it while I was making it last night, but haven't been able to sneak in some play time at work, haha.

I agree. I really hope there's a dedicated loop plugin in 8.

Looper using only Live devices

Here's a live looper using racks of simple delays. If anyone would like to improve on it, that would be cool. http://www.sendspace.com/file/u1wcw5 Using five computer keys or midi controllers, you can control the Loop Record Start/Erase, Overdub, and choose between 1,2,4 and 8 bars. Everything is se...

Have a go at this. It's a live set that will do most of what you want, with audio anyways. It only uses Live's devices, no external plugins, so it should work fine for most people. http://www.sendspace.com/file/u1wcw5 Using five computer keys or midi controllers, you can control the Loop Record Star...

Under Midi preferences, have you turned on "remote" for the nanokontrol's midi input?

My lovely girlfriend got me a nanokontrol for Xmas, I love it so far.
Fits in a laptop bag, cheap, works great, not a single complaint.

I too am confused about all the latency issues people have, especially with modern computers. I use a 2.4ghz MBP w/ 4gb of ram and a Motu Ultralite, I run Live 6 on Leopard at 64 samples all the time without issues. I was able to do the same on my macbook 2.0ghz C2D w/ 3gb of ram as well. Of course,...

leedsquietman definitely has a point, but as far as my setup goes, I can run 20-30 tracks with plenty of plugs with no problems. Granted, I'm not running shitloads of CPU heavy plug-ins ALL the time, so obvioulsy results would be different if that were the case. Also of note, I'm still running Live ...

Not sure if it is too big for your footprint requirements, but I really like my Motu Ultralite. I have a 2.4ghz C2D Macbook Pro w/ 4gb of ram, running Live 6.0.10 on Leopard. Using the Ultralite, running Live's built-in CPU test at 44.1khz at 80%, I don't get any crackles, pops or other glitches AT ...
