My bank presets are quite similar. I too like to have a new track auto created with an empty loop of the same length as whatever is spinning on the selected track I'm coming from. But in Mobius you set that behavior as a global preference. I have been thinking of setting up a pedal for reassigning the track sync master status but not done it yet. In Mobius we have the global preference "Maximum/Minimum Tempo range" that protects you from arriving at a way too sloooow tempo if starting out with a very long loop (and vice versa) but I will need to reassign track sync master status to set a new global quantize cycle if I start out with a 34 bar first loop and then go to the next track and divide it down to one or two bars. Anyway, below is my Gordius Little Giant 2 preset list (copying/pasting from my back-up USB stick). Per __________________________________________ Per Boysen.

Freezing etc. For Chapman Stick Mainstage patches this bank is divided in two sides, controlling the two fretboard’s unique effect chains. When entering a new LG2 bank it instantly sends out a MIDI#cc for Mobius Max Feedback. Some switches reconfigure expression pedal programming. Expression pedal 1 mostly used for input volume, sometimes also to freeze sound at no input position. Expression pedal 2 always used for Mobius looper feedback. Faderfox LV1 handmixer and LX1 are doubling up some commands plus offering direct access to any loop on any track. I limit the looper to five loops per track and only four tracks. A hand fader for Secondary Feedback is important for the playing style I like.
