Resampling in Live (Re: Ableton w/ VST Looper)

Resampling on an audio track makes a loop of what is happening on the  
master output at that moment. After you have resampled you may of  
course route the clip of that clip (loop) directly to any physically  
available output on the sound card, or to a Return Track if you like  
to use that as the pipe to a different output. But REsampling is not  
a real-time audio routing method, only a quick way to snag what's
