Re: Mobius & Live...why

I initially got Live "Lite" with my audio interface and I thought it might
be a cool way to do a live show sans instruments.  Kind of "DJ" my own
music by pre-recording loops and then kind of reconstitute them.

BORING.  To me at least.  People seemed to like it but I felt like I was
checking my email and not making music.

So then when I started using Mobius I really wanted to use VST instruments
and effects as well.  Live was a good choice because I could just upgrade
from the Lite version.  It's also ubiquitous so almost all commercial plug
ins are tested so they work in it.  Also, it's easy to use.  Bidule seems
super powerful, but most of it I don't need.  I like to keep that kind of
complexity away from me in the looping process.

Also, one of the things I love about Live is that I can make automation
loops that are a lot longer than my audio loops.  This is great for
applying an effect that changes over a very long time period.

Basically I use 20% of what Live is good for, but it's nice to know that I
have it for the future and in the mean time I have a great little
instrument and looper set up that's stable.
