RE: Repeater Synch Workaround.

yes, a blank loop.

the problem isn't the tempo display and deviation there-of. the 
problem is the initial sync of the repeater to midi clock. when you 
start the master clock (sequencer, etc) the repeater doesn't start 
and sync up to the clock and therefore the loop doesn't play on-beat 
with the sequencer.

now the question is if you do follow Sottilaro's suggestion, can you 
in fact start up the loop with the master and have it work? let me go 
try it.

no. it doesn't work. it's better but it still doesn't sync up.
