Re: Mobius/Windows: how to stop loops

Hi Tom,

I've been trying out both and for the moment settled with the  
standalone version. There are pros and cons with both. I play  
instruments through a TC Electronics FireworX stereo multi effect box  
and like to get those sounds hardwired into the loops so I can cut up  
and mess around more with the loops. There's not much time available  
for instant multi track live remixing when you're playing instruments  
at the same time ;-)   I'd rather erase and redo in two seconds than  
stretch for the appropriate mixer fader if one sound layer should  
come out too loud or too down.

Also, i'f I should use Live synced after Möbius, many of my Fireworx  
patches would suffer from the unstable "second generation" MIDI clock  
sent out from Live, causing ugly digital noise. Unfortunately Möbius  
can not send out MIDI clock sync signal over multiple ports (into  
Live + to physical MIDI port where my Fireworx gets its sync signal)  
so the only way to sync these three units is to run Möbius as the  
master, having Live sync up as a slave and at the same time create a  
new MIDI Clock signal (way crappier "second generation" because Live  
has to play catch-up all the time) and send that out to the FireworX  
box. Crazy!  It's not a bug, it's just how MIDI Clock sync is working.

I hope Möbius will soon let you define multiple MIDI ports by  
preferences, the way Live 5 does. Then this would not be a problem  
and I would be able to run both Live and FireworX slaved DIRECTLY to  
Möbius original (and stable) MIDI clock signal. On that day I might  
return to the VST version ;-)
