Each 8x8 matrix can be regard as a 'song playground' and you can design 128 'songs' in one go, for a bigger 'live set'.
That would actually not be that difficult. There's also no big GUI change involved. I already put a similar feature request to myself.

You can do all above in one go, if you use AutoHotkey, triggering required Reaper actions from there, too. In practice it means, press one hotkey, finished. Exactly as you do in Reaper itself, only here, this is an external processor. If you say, Playtime does not cut any of those 'external processing capabilities', everything still will be correctly updated EVEN inside Playtime, then great. Another reason Ableton can go home, to Berlin.
OK, now I get the online offline thing. Makes sense. Yes, Playtime doesn't cut any of those external processing capabilities.
