RE: Repeater Synch Workaround.

You only have the choice of which tracks you want to *slip*.  The trim
function affects the overall loop integrity (literally how the trim points
make the linear audio seem connected).  So you can trim loops (which edits
the playback reference points for all four .WAVs) and you can slip tracks
(which changes the phasing of one or more tracks in reference to the loop
trim settings).  At least that's my understanding of it.

let's admit it's true for a first track once recorded, but what about the 3
other tracks then ?
I mean do you know if start/end loop points of the 3 other tracks are
like the first track once recorded ?
Or do the start/end points or the 3 other tracks are definitively fixed
according to the LPA ?
Is it truely a quadriphonic loop, or a 4-independent loop track ?
