Yes, I'm a live looper. I just did a gig last night actually using Live just by chance. Opening track was an improvised 6 string bass piece. I'll post the track once I've edited the recording of the gig. The rest of the set was prerecorded clips being mixed, manipulated and arranged in realtime with integrated hardware fx units also.
Other times I use hardware for live impro stuff as I primarily use guitar or bass but have used a theremin device before and field recordings.
My main gripe with Live as a live looper is the lack of an audio overdub option. This is a serious flaw. There are ways around it using certain plugins etc but this should not be necessary and puts extra cpu strain on your machine.

Heya, Ritch, I'd be glad to hear that Ableton Live thing when/if you put it up online.
