    Yes, of course it is! Think about it this way; if you have an audio track that has audio in it, you can put beat repeat on it too, and it will work. So instead of using audio on the track, just set it to the input of the microphone. Good luck.

    Yeah, just make sure you have the right tempo, unless you're into that polyrhythmic thing. Also, if you end up getting off by a 16th or 32nd and you are feeling a different beat one than Live, the beat repeat won't start at the right time.
