you seem to be confusing what a track is vs. what a loop is..... I
understood the repeater let you have some large number of different loops
of whatever length, but the tracks in each had to be the same length.

On the Echoplex we let you choose, by way of the SwitchQuant parameter.
Either it always switches immediately when you hit the button, or it is
quantized to the next cycle point as you want here. (and the next software
version will give the option of switching loops at the next loop point, for
those interested...)   You will find you want different methods of loop
switching depending on the application.
