"Resamling" in Mobius (was: Resampling in Live)

Yes, that was a better way to explain it :-)   Resampling in Live is  
powerful! Mobius have a similar function named Bounce Recording.  
Please let me post a short excerpt from the Mobius manual to exemplify:

For a long time I was lobbying for such functionality in Live, but it  
never gained enough priority compared to many "meat and potato"  
functions that needed to be fixed to stand up to Live's new DAW  
ambition (maybe I could have achieved it with Apple Scriptiing on a  
Mac, but I have yet to learn that). Anyway, since Mobius came around  
I don't cry for Live any more ;-)  These days the bummer no 1 is that  
Logic and Mobius doesn't run on the same OS; that would be something  
extremely powerful for studio production! (but you can still sync up  
two PC's for a Logic/Mobius interaction, do real-time file rendering  
in Mobius and move the file into the Mac on a Logic track, through  
the network or with a USB stick).
