quantize start/end is not continuous sync
Marc is right that the flexible way to maintain sync is with time 
stretching as the Repeater does it. But its regulating behind, even 
oscillating sometimes...
The EDPs slight correction seems to be more acurate - as long as the 
source tempo does not change
