Many thanks for the tip. Today I tried to deselect the "fix length" 
buttons and this was the best thing I've done for a long time :-)   I 
have built a system in Numerology with three parallel Augustus Loopers 
and then I have ten FCB foot buttons to transform all loops at once, to 
improvise chord changes. What happens now, with the "fix length" 
deselected, is that the poly rhythm between the three loops changes 
with each transformation of pitch (since each loop does take on a new 
length when re-pitched). As "a meta instrument" I actually like this 
better! I never get the tape simulation artefacts now. Not until I step 
the pedal for "triplet" or "reverse" and that is all cool. Those tape 
sounds ARE great, and this sparse they come out just right IMHO.

All the best
