yes. For some reason the top tempo limit on the Repeater is 240 BPM. I
guess that is because they were coming from a dance music perspective
music is never faster than that. Personally, having played a lot of jazz
the past, I've seen/played a lot of music that was as fast as 300 BPM so
that aspect of the repeater seems like a minor limitation to me.
