but set it too fast and the Timing LED stops flashing, 
and 8th Quant gives up and acts like Quant=OFF

I like the step sequencer though ;-)

Yes, with Quant=8 it's hard to get the exact right 8th note ,
a fraction late and you get ther next one instead.

I'm sure Matthias considered 8th Quant when he was sorting out 
Quant = LOP, which was way before I got involved.

All I did was to make a convincing case for it,
(and worked out the way to make it easy to replace just one 8th.)

So the mad prop goes back to Andre for turning us on to so
many EDP possibilities.
(it looked a bit out of place with my other stuff anyhow)
