What is a "blank loop"? Do mean record a silent track at a desired tempo? This will create a loop with one recorded track, not a "blank loop". Do you then record over your initial reference track in "replace" mode or are you recording to a new track? The folks at Electrix mentioned that it's normal for the tempo readout to flux by 1 or 2 tenths of a second from midi clock as the Repeater is in midi sync mode. It's not clear to me if it is a readout issue or if the readout is accurately displaying Repeater's true tempo. My assumption is the later. And I also assume that it's probably imperceptible as long as it is always with 1 or 2 tenths of a second from the clocked time. What do you guys think? -- Tim -----Original Message----- From: Mark Sottilaro [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Tuesday, September 11, 2001 9:30 AM To: Loopers-Delight@loopers-delight.com Subject: Repeater Synch Workaround. The only way I can figure out to defeat it is to first, record a blank loop while in "USER" synch mode at a desired tempo, one that matches your sequence. <...> I wonder if I'd get better results if my midi clock were not going through a MIDI merge, so that I can get footcontrol and clock.
