Now I have been known for some rather complex setups in the past, but 
what you describe here sounds crazy, even by my standards... could you 
please add a more detailed description, including:
    1. how does your rack setup work?
    2. what is your pedalboard like, and which h/w sequencer are you 
using (and why not use Live instead of the h/w sequencer)?
    3. I understand that you're using Live's pattern sequencer to do the 
programmed rhythms. What is your sound source (plugin perhaps)?
    4. patches that take random bits...is that some self-made kinda 
"processor looper" (built using what)? Could you describe that in more
