If I'm then running running a one bar loop with the quantize set to 1/4 and
go "record", will the looper then wait until the end of the bar/loop to
start recording (thus increasing the loop length)?

Will it wait to the next 4th note starting?
(you said "NEXT loop point" but there can only be one loop point in a loop.
That's what confuses me)

Ha, ha.... That's the spirit! ;-)
