Guys, that's a Repeater flaw I like! I use to record loops into EDP and
Repeater at tempi 40-100 BPM with no problem. That's with EDP sending
midi clock sync related to the setting 4 8ths/cycle. Then I sometimes
change EDP program to 32 or 64 8ths/cycle and the resulting tempo is
usually way to fast for the Repeater to catch. But the wonderful thing I
have discovered is that the machine seems to divide the tempo so the
music is still "in sync" from a rhythmic point of view.
