Sorry to interrupt here, but I only use Live as a host when I can let  
Live set the master tempo. And that happens almost never. So in  
praxis I don't use any VST host at all. I think Mobius is so much  
more "playable" as a standalone version. When using Mobius to create  
tracks for recording projects I use the "Record Audio" function in  
Mobius that renders a file to the hard drive. Then I move that file  
into a traditional DAW (Logic is my fav) to eventually assemble the  
piece, sweeten audio, mix and master for CD or DVD.

The reason I don't like Live is that it doesn't follow MIDI clock  
very well. At least when playing solo gigs I like to have Mobius  
define the tempo and provide the master MIDI clock and last time I  
did that, in November 2005, Live "lost sync" way too often.

Live has nice plug-ins and lets you change pitch and timing, is that  
what you mean you may not need?

These days Live has MIDI sequencing and some basic MIDI editing. Live  
does not let you define MIDI groove templates from audio loops or  
MIDI loops though.
