I agree. But since you brought it up it must be said that Live's
Looper limits loop length division and multiplying to 2. For me that
is a "show stopper" since I love setting poly rhythms between parallel
loops of different lengths. This limitation does not exist if you
record loops as audio clips, but then you have no overdub or feedback
option. But you could of course host a more advanced looper in Live,
like Augustus Loop or Mobius.

So, no noise reduction, huh?

Noop. If you don't regard sophisticated use of EQ "noise reduction".
Generally I don't know about any software noise reduction that works
well on a direct audio input stream, but many such algorithms work
well on audio that has already been recorded to disc thanks to the
"pre listen" functionality. Finding no such thing in Live though - but
lots of distortion and noise creating tools ;-)
