Getting Looper to work with many instruments

Hi guys -

New user here (Live 8), but have spent a while on it - and today got to grips with the looper section.

Its great but it seems to me that it will only work when connected with an instrument - i.e. i can have a grand piano track and then double click looper and eventually get a 2 bar piano loop. ideal.

Thing is - lets say i now create a bass track and use another looper for a bassline under the piano. This works fine - until i play back both loops (having dragged them from their loopers into the session view). The timing is always out of sync.

So I'd like to know - is it possible to sync loads of instruments on one 'looper' and if so how ? I tried creating a new audio track and putting a looper on it - but nothing would record into the looper.

    you could put the looper on a return and direct tracks to it, or you could route the audio out from tracks to the looper's audio track,  set the looper's track monitoring to on.
