pretty much essential if the EDP isn't synced to a device
that gives you the timing.

As you realised later, InsertMode=SUS does this.

But it's also possible to end the Insert with Record,
just the same as for Multiply.

Yes, that's a fault in the manual.
In Loop3 there was only Quant=CYC ( or OFF),
it seems that sentence  didn't get updated to cover the new
8th Quant and LoopQuant  were a very late addition to the loop4 features,
all functions that are "quantisable" are affected by these.
