In the past, the main use I've found for the two has been to use the
Repeater to record grooves - i.e. Bass line + Comping, and then looped the
Echoplex on top of it to create the melody for the arrangement. The 
loop would be looping a multiple of the Repeater's loop. (You could do the
same just with the repeater, but you would have less flexibility, and would
be able to do stuff like re-recording the chord progression for the 
and then >voila< fade in the original melody from the EDP)

Alternately, I would use the echoplex to make shorter loops from sounds on
precreated cds, that I would mangle while the repeater kept the progression
going in the background.
