A DIFF : re:Workaround in Ableton's LIVE 4.0

i guess im jumping in a little late, but ive been having a hoot with live
lately and was wondering if some of you live pros could tell me something

can you do asynchronous loops in live?, from what ive gathered it just
stretches/shrinks whatever you drop in to fit the tempo, is there a way to
make it play whatever loops you add loop at their own tempi but within teh
same liveset?
and can you combine it stretch/shrinking loops AND leaving loops at their
own tempi at the same time?
