Both my DJ/mixer and I use Live 8. I use it primarily as a DAW with my MOTU 8pre, sometimes I'll run a track through the line out of the 8pre and into my pedal board and back into an in to rerecord the track with one of my pedals. Mostly this is with one of my synth circuits (usually involving my moogerfooger LPF), but more often than not the effects built into Ableton are more than sufficient if not superior. My DJ/mixer uses Ableton Live as a kind of loop manager that he uses to reconstruct the song in a live setting, and mix back into the live song. Live, my DJ uses my 8pre to take two live feeds from my Ampeg SVP-BSP (one clean, one dirty w/fx) two live feeds from my guitarist (amp line out, mike on his cab, or one from someone we're playing with; another player (keys, horn, vox, second guitarist, etc) and three from drums (sometimes this is condensed through a Mackie P/A mixer, so my DJ can run a certain mic'd drum (or all of them) through simple pedals (delay, reverb, etc) back into the motu and thus back into live. All of this can in turn be used to create loops, that can be remixed w/Ableton's effects and the thrown back into the live mix. If you were counting all that, you might notice that I only use 7 inputs on my 8 pre. This is because one channel has to be designated for a line out, and even if I'm not using one of the channels for a line out, it always seems that I get a weird feedback loop on that channel. Motu claims that there should be no problem but I don't trust it. There are two FireWire connections on the back of the MOTU, and one idea that I'd like to experiment with, is using the one or two of the in's to record to a separate mac dedicated to just recording the live sound with a couple of mic's. This was where I was seeing Logic possibly fitting into our program, but this is also something Live could totally handle. As you can see, we're still experimenting with it a lot. It seems everytime we play we set it up a little differently, but we're totally stoked on the results.
