What I was thinking about is to stereo split the tracks of a Repeater
loop. That I did a lot when I was using a Repater. But when
scrutinizing my memory I'm not sure I did long "Steve Reich phasings".
The way to achieve that would be to make one stereo track slightly
shorter or longer and to do that on a Repetar you need to tune it
up/down a cent or two.

I know software solutions is OT in this thread but in Mobius you can
do a very accurate phasing by applying a script Simeon made. It splits
the loop into two parallel loops, pans them a bit left/right and makes
one slightly shorter. I have changed that script a bit and for me the
phasing reaches its first sync point after about sixty bars, which I
think works well. Actually, I migrated most of my EDP, Repeater and
Ableton Live tricks into Mobius when picking it up seven years ago.
