The Show Page already is pretty good, the only thing I miss about it though is the possibility to record and play back audio/midi loops right on the spot.

Instead of having to use pre-recorded backing tracks, I would love to just set the sound design and the mixing adjustments for each track before the performance, so that I could record and play my loops live on stage and build up the song that way= Live Looping! :D

The ATOM Pad Controllers could control loop features like record, overdub, playback, one shot, etc. and maybe even manipulate the FX settings on the Vocal track in real time for example...

If this would be made possible, the whole "Live" Feeling of the Show Page would improve dramatically and open many creative doors for musicians all around the world. Also S1 would probably be the biggest competition for Ableton Live then!

Sounds good.

I record on the same track and wanna hear the recorded sound. But every time i press Rec, the "old" sound is muted.

I came from Cakewalk Sonar and this DAW has this record feature.

I would also love this functionality in both the show and song page. Either in the form of an integrated plugin, or a record mode that allows sound on sound recording.

I support this request!

I am currently having to learn Ableton to be able to record there and then move the tracks over to studio one.

I want to be able to have the same tangible experience of just playing guitar with a loop pedal but the ability to record/mix each layer as a separate track. If you can work out a way to do this with the atom sq in S1 (much like the push 2 + Ableton) that would really keep my business.

I was one step away from buying this great DAW, because the Show Mode looks so promising.

After realising, you actually can't do Live Looping with my plugged Guitar or a Midi Instrument, I decided to stick with Ableton Live.

I hope they will include this function some day.

@Developers, do you guys plan to do this, would be nice to hear about your plans.

I Support this request, too.

If this feature is implemented in Studio One it will be the best DAW!

I've tried some workarounds in the last days (e.g. mapping midi pads, usability of auto punch in/out) but nothing really matches to the way of ableton runs.
I understand that Studio One is a different DAW against ableton, but i think presonus will get more users (and within more money) with this feature.

This would be a great addition to Studio One. It would keep a lot of us from needing to bounce back and forth between Studio One and Ableton.

Yes. I'm waiting for this feature on the next update. I just don't want to buy another DAW to be able to live looping.

I support the implementation of this request in the showpage as well,  you guys are pretty close, but we still need:these essential functionalities:

#1. trigger the song parts (arrangement) from a midi controller (not just from keystrokes) , also trigger the markers (arrangement mode) from midi controllers (with the same sync options (next beat, next measure) .. so we can use the recording/arragemente sections in real time

#2 record the live performance, both: midi and audio.

Please add this functionality. I love studio One for many reasons and the thought of having to learn another DAW for Live Looping gives me anxiety. The Show page seems really cool, it would be really nice to be able to use that to play live instruments without all the latency, and also have the ability to do live looping from there as well. I feel like putting the Presonus development touch on live looping would make Studio One a major competitor in the game.

I swear Ableton must have some sort copyright or patent on the way they handle live looping because NO other DAW has that function. I can't even find a third party plugin that even comes close to it.

If the Presonus team can pull this off, I swear, I will fan boy so hard, people will think I am using Reaper Hahaha

Definitely support this request. I live stream on Twitch and have to use Ableton for their clip looping feature. Would LOVE to have this available on Studio One so I can move completely away from Ableton
