I asked them that question at NAMM, and the answer was no then. The 
time-stretch and pitch shift are independent. I assume that is still the 
case. For remixing different samples from other sources, you would want it 
independent. I assume that's the use they were targeting with these 

But loopers have always loved that speed up and slow down effect that you 
could get from changing tape speed on a tape loop, or changing the delay 
time on older delays. And then mixing overdubs in at different speeds. So 
far as I know Repeater doesn't do that.

(If I could get a nickel for every time somebody has asked for that 
on the EDP, I would be writing this from my own island.)
