Could someone help out a n00b? I'm running a live show, and I need to crossfade from one loop to the next, but I only have one mouse pointer. Is there a way I can bring one loop down, while bringing up the other one?

Nope. It's time to start shopping for cheapie MIDI
controllers. If you've got an Oxygen8 with a bunch
of dials on it, that'll do. Anything that sends MIDI
with a single continuous controller on it will do.
OK - so i bought a m-audio axiom 49. the only problem i found was there was a lot of latency in moving the sliders and changing the volume. is this a processor/memory issue? sometimes, when i moved the sliders, (they were controlling gain in mix of individual channels), nothing would happen, sometimes they would leap up suddenly. in the editor they were mapped as cc/#/inc.
i should also mention that i was getting less than perfect response in using the computer keyboard, trying to restart individual loops with "a" or "s". sometimes it would not work, or sometimes there would be a .75 second delay.
i am running a g4 powerbook 1.5 with 1.25 gigs of ram, and i didn't have any other programs running at the time. i had 8 channels open, with 1 minute aif files. the keyboard was connected via usb. is there a way that i can maximize the accuracy of the interface? am i just overloading it?

I'm not really seeing anything like that, but perhaps I
work a bit more slowly than you do. Would you characterize
your fader activity as approaching what you'd be doing
with the faders on a DJ mixing [i.e. transformatorizary]?
