Hi Paul,

It's always a bit wobbly the first time you record a loop. I guess it
simply cannot calculate tempo, keeping up sync and record at the same
time. The workaround is to define the looplength first by recording
silence. Then you can go back into recording mode and record audio
without that wobbling, flutter effect ;-). 

Best wishes
