Re: What are the looper features that manufacturers are stupid to leave out?

OK that mult record ending on edp IS a kind of divide, true!

But you are def risking going off synch then huh? Cos its down to a foot timing... the divides IM TALKING BOUT.. Repeater Trim and Mobius Divide, is a exact division of your original loop... You can of course get simerla SOUNDING effects with the EDP.. How about ending record with multiply... then you have 2 cycles that sounds like 1 loop, but you can divide it.
Or my fave, ending record with next loop 6 times. But these are just more reasons why EDP is best looper in the world ever for me (wink)..

Hasnt got proper divide though!

Mobius you can keep dividing tll all you have is a buzz... Repeater is not SO friendly, but you can get a tiny bleep.... but to be in synch its probably 1 beat, to get smaller, you will not be staying in synch... nice thing with repeater is that then you can "window" (to steal a EDP term) through the loop with that divide size... (or rather trim size)

I would like Divide.
If we can have Multiply, why not?
I dont mean UN-multipying by the way (like EDP) I mean halving of the
original loop.
AFAIK mobius is the only software to offer it.  and Repeater is the
only hardware, (repeater calls it Trim however, so divide isnt coveret
term, but the effect can be achieved.
Now I feel kinda stupid, because I seem to remember that you're a long-time EDP user and I'm not, but:
the Mobius Divide (Repeater Trim) is the inversion (so to speak) of the Mobius Instant Multiply (Repeater: Multiply), which afaik is not available on the EDP (?).
However, on the EDP, ending a multiply with record gives you the possibility to cut the loop in half (or other fractions)? I know I did this a lot with SusMultiply, albeit with Mobius, but some of the works of e.g. LaFosse and Willers sound like they do just this using an EDP.
