RE: quick edp one...

Hmmmm ... I don't believe that you can break a long loop
into cycles (but I wouldn't be the guy to give you a
definitive answer there). If, in the long run, what you
want to do is a re-multiply on a loop that's only one
long cycle, you can do an unrounded multiply.

Say you have a loop going that is 1 cycle and 8 seconds.
If you hit multiply and then, when the counter gets to
2 seconds (for example) you hit record, you'll end up
with a 2 second loop consisting of the first 2 seconds
of your previous 8 second loop.

Did that make sense?

I believe this was actually a bug in the software that
turned out to be pretty useful so it was never fixed.
