The repeater is actually following a midi clock. The 'spongyiness' I'm
refering is how a bassline, for instance, will sound less than perfectly
grooving with a drum loop, though the people I'm playing with will tell me
that I had hit the groove dead on when I played it, so I know it's not just
the shock of hearing myself :>

Hmm. People have been complaining about the midi clock from the XL-7 and
other devices. Perhaps a different master clock would be better. The
repeater, for instance?
