the corollary of the ReAlign commands are the various StartSong commands.
These are intended for when the Echoplex is the clock master. They allow
you to retrigger other downstream devices and move them out of alignment,
and then get them ReAligned with the Echoplex by sending a startsong from
the echoplex at the right time. Or letting you change the startpoint on
Echoplex and retrigger downstream devices to now consider that new point
the downbeat. Just as powerful as the ReAlign idea, but in the other

startpoint commands go instantly, so I guess that idea isn't directly
possible. It wouldn't make any sense to quantize it for the case of
quantize=cycle or loop, it would end up in the same place. It would make
sense for quantize=8th, so that is an interesting idea.
If you have a sequencer sync'd to the echoplex clock you can use that to
send the startpoint command in rhythm.
