Re: making the switch from Repeater to Ableton Live

My Repeater used to crash every once and a while, but I figured it out. 
  It was me.  I can't remember exactly what I was doing, but it happened 
like clockwork if I pressed the wrong button when trying to erase a 
loop... I think.  Now I can't remember.  I bet if you search the 
archives for "Repeater crash" you'll find my post.  I guess I don't do 
it any more because I have not had a single crash in years.
