It will stay in sync with the drum machine if you use quantize or not.
Either way it always rounds off the ending of a Record so that it gives
right loop length according the the midi clock tempo and the 8ths/cycle
With Quantize off, you can start recording at any time. When you tap
again to end the recording, it will round off to get the right cycle
and then stay in sync after that. This is nice if you want sync but don't
want to be constrained by where the sequencer says the downbeat is.
With Quantize on, the Echoplex starts recording only at the downbeat as
determined from the midi clock. When you tap Record at a different point,
it will go into the quantizing wait state. (ooo on the display.) When the
downbeat comes along it will start recording. When you tap record again to
end, it will round off to the end of the cycle, same as above. This is
if you need your loops to Record metrically aligned with the sequence.
