it's worth noting that in the software realm, Absynth can be set to some interesting tunings on a patch by patch basis. I seem to recall that "just" was one of them.

I'm really interested in what Mastering plugin your running, as i'd imagine thats where your CPU is getting sucked up. if it's not for live preformance and your just writing, then it may be worth writing the tunes and then mastering them seperately.

it's simple as can be. just get live playing in sync with the track the same way you'd sync 2 CD players and run the audio signal into live for recording and manipulation.

or, just rip the tune off the CDs and get rid of the CD decks all together.

yeah, you can do what your talking about with Max as well if you wanted, but kongbalong is correct, live will not accept midi from plugins. so you'd need to run max in the background as a seperate app. i do it all the time.

not sure what OS your running to recommend software solutions. I think you'll like "Soundflower" from Cycling74 or "Jack Audio Server" which is open source.

personally i'd stick to firewire if you can. From what i understand USB2 can burst data at speeds up to and very slightly higher then firewire 400, however the sustained data throughput is much lower.
