Well, not that I had been wishing for it. It was more like I found out
what musical situation would make the Repeater's wobbling tolerable
:-)  And I had an EDP as the main sync master looper that was dead on
the beat, so the slippery timing of the Repeater worked like a kind of
halfway sloppy ghost hits behind and the around the precise hits from
the EDP. I'm not sure the Repeater would have sounded ok without the
EDP upfront as the sync master. Sometimes when playing with that rig I
imagined the EDP as the accurate professional and the Repeater as the
drunk but incredibly talented improviser rambling its way through the
score with a funny smile :-)  That's what I liked with its
imperfection; it sounded funny in an almost organic way.
