Re: Is there a timing quantizer available?
I'm sure Antares is working on an "Auto-Time" as we speak. But, for now
you're responsible for your own salvation as far as time goes. No buying
your way out of Gimpy Time Loop Hell using gear. What are you, Catholic?
No offense, you Catholic fuckers. ;)
If you want undo on your looper, you're just going to have to shell out
more bucks. Save your pennies, kids.
Funny concept that whole "what you play is what you get" bullshit.
