AW: Mobius/Windows: how to stop loops

Dear Jeff,

thanks for your quick reply! That's what I call user support.

There are basically two things  I had in mind.

1) I have a loop running, then stop the audio output mid-loop and somtime
later restart the loop from the beginning.
This can be accomplished by setting MuteMode to Start if I get this
Application: Record the introductory toms+guitar riff of Slayer: Raining
Blood on one track. To play the intro as it appears on the recording, I'll
want to have only the beginning of the loop playing, then a pause, then to
restart the loop. 

2) I have a loop running, then stop the audio output mid-loop and somtime
later continue loop playback from the point where I stopped.
According to your explanation, this is done by MuteMode=Pause.
Application: I record a cadenza into a track. Now I want to play each chord
of the cadenza and then fill in between the chords with some stuff I play.

Thanks again,
