Hi Os,

I'm a happy user now, but I wonder what else you have changed? It  
seems like it doesn't go out of sync that much any longer after  
changing beat divisor or wacking audio by the reverse function.

Or maybe this stable feel is because I'm using Augustus Loop now as  
the master looper? (sending MIDI clock to Ableton Live and my  
FireworX "pre amp / fx processor" unit)

August now delivers that cool "first loop tempo setting" option. For  
my looping taste Augustus Loop as the master is the perfect balance  
between control and wackyness - I mean Augustus doesn't always come  
back right on the downbeat. Sometimes when I have transposed the loop  
a dozen times, or reversed it etc, it is a quarter note off or so and  
then you'll have to kick in the revers for a second - or change the  
beat divisor and back again. These tricks use to get the loop back  
into the beat, which is amazing because Augustus Loop is supposed to  
be a free flowing tape delay simulator? You must have done something  
new to this version in that meter syncing department!
