I can't get Augustus Loop to loop for a few bars, even if i put "16" in 

What would happen if I used no quantization for recording? Hmm....I'd 
probably need it for playback though.

Ableton live records with latency if I don't use Software monitoring. I 
have to use SOftware monitroing for the wave to line up right. Strange 

I think my MIDI set-up is fine...
