GR2 looping in Live (was: Re: New live looping track posted)

Well, sort of "yes". I used another software looper that, in  
functionality, is close to Guitar-Rig's looper (Augustus Loop) in  
Ableton. I didn't find it very intuitive for Guitar-Rig style looping  
though. The concept I used is what I guess would be the best solution  
for Guitar-Rig In Live; creating live loops in the GR2 looper and  
record them to parallel Live tracks as loops. Compared to the fluent  
way of playing with Mobius it was way too complex IMHO (also too  
complex compared to using Live but taking advantage of Augustus  
Loop's ability to change loop pitch/speed - actually the concept I  
brought over from AL/Live into Mobius).

When I tested Guitar Rig 2 I preferred to open it in Bidule and loop  
with Mobius instead of opening it in Live. If you are happy with the  
sound of GR2, that's a looping set-up I'm happy to recommend.  
Generally I'm finding Live too "bulky" for using as a musician. For  
live mixing or re-mix style live looping it's excellent  though.
