Re: EDP syncing LoopIII vs LoopIV
how I understand your problem ???
1- the quantized behaviour of the strt rec point is the only way in loop3
when sync IN.
loop 4 allows you to strt rec at any point and end rec will be rounded to
the next cycle point
2-the cycle (initial loop time) is determined by the 8th params
changing it will allow you to have different lenght cycle 8 8th= 1 meas in
4/4 4 8th = Half note etc...
Trust us all you wont regret your loop 4 upgrade
