I don't use Live's looping functions (mobius does what I need) but  
honestly, if you don't think it can be played as an instrument, check  
out the Kid Beyond videos on the Ableton site.  I've seen him perform  
many times and if you didn't know what he was doing it would seem  
like all the looping was done on the floor.

Yes, but the combo of all those things... makes it so much more.
