Where did you see that? In the old Echoplex manual, under InsertMode, it 
says it IS affected by quantize. In fact, that manual is missing a 
description of how it works unquantized. The description there is really 
only explaining how it works with quantize on. The new EDP+ manual has a 
better explanation.

It is the same as in LoopIII. A sustain action Replace when quantize is 
off. With Quantize on it replaces the quantize period exactly.

When you press Replace down, it waits for the next 8th note to start the 
replace. When you release Replace waits for the next 8th note to end it. 
you just tap it you will get a single 8th note.

(the 8th notes don't have to be 8th notes in fact. It is a subdivision of 
the loop cycle set by the 8ths/cycle parameter. Quantize=8th follows this 
subdivision. The default setting of 8ths/cycle is 8, for 8th notes. But 
can set it to anything and have any rhythmic subdivision you want.)

Under InsertMode in the old manual. The new EDP+ manual has a whole 
for replace.

Forget the manual, go try it! It is obvious when you use it.
