I have noticed that my Repeater performs best at tempi between 40 and 
80 BPM. I usually slave the Repeater to midi clock from my EDP and if I 
should find myself in a situation where the Repeater reads more than 80 
BPM I step my midi foot controller for a program change msg that calls 
up another EDP program with only a difference in the 8th/cycle setting, 
which induces a different tempo being sent out from the EDP.

I also try to never record so many loops on the Repeater that the 
machine has to use the CFC card. Trying to always stay in RAM only. I 
have set up one midi foot pedal for "erase loop" that I use a lot with 
the Repeater.

All the best
