I have a lot of gear which either doesn't have a power switch at all or 
it's not accessible. My fix is to run everything from a Juice Goose 
isolator which is a single rack space box that also provides surge and 
over-voltage protection.

A handy front panel power switch on the Juice Goose kills everything in 
rack(s) at once.

Yeup, in regards to raw audio. Data that Repeater uses for time and pitch 
manipulation along with some other info is stored in a proprietary format. 
If you modify the raw audio file, then any pointers that the support files 
have back into the main file may not line up. That can be "interesting", 
but may not be musical.

Repeater does this on purpose to be able to support UNDO and generally 
always have a reference back to the original data. If you want to capture 
the time/pitch shifting that Repeater has done on a track, then you will 
need to resample that track into a clean one, thus creating a new track 
who's base .WAV file is shifted.
