ECLIPSE looping algorithms are basically delay based loopers, NOT
further data accessing algos or sampler based, like Jamman, Echoplex or
mighty Repeater. They are closer to a pcm42.
So even the best midiclock sendin unit has some slight shit in the
value, meaning that the audio in the looping delay gets screwed up by
this sync. You know about this issue, being it about a different
Even tough ECLIPSE is not a looper in the JM,EDP, Repeater style, I
still suggest its use as a looping device, seen what great things Torn,
Fripp and Brook have done with similar technology and still do!
40 sec is not bad.

Please, read my previous answer to Matthias.

Yes, Alex. Lfos will stay in dead sync with a drum machine sending
midiclock to Eclipse! No doubt.
