The original idea was to create a loop with a number of repeats using 
Multiply meanwhile noodling), then go straight into Insert and be 
As Noodling is a strictly non-loop related practise it must be stopped 
Insert can be used.

Well I find it pretty much imposible to Insert with Quantise=on if the 
is a couple of seconds or over, that sort of metronomic precision isn't 
of my abilities, (particularly not in a live setting) The ends just don't 
quite match up. With a drum machine this would be easy, and using Quantize 
would be essential.
After struggling to record multiple loops on the JamMan without the 'added 
assistance' of the drum machine , the EDP is a total relief.(it's just 
possible on the JM, but the error compounds with each new loop)
Oh yes, and Quantised Reverse is cool, especially on one of a pair of

I like the freedom to Multiply without Quantise as I often start a phrase 
before the beginning of the bar,(or a note before the beat), then Multiply 
still "quantised" in terms of the Cycle length.

Don't know where I got that from?!?!

It wasn't me, it was Claude ;-)
