I used to be a Repeater owner, and I had bumps whilst trying to do 
seamless loops (as well as many other problems). I thought it might have 
been a defective unit, but I have also tried 2 other people's Repeaters 
since, and the same happened with their units. Maybe you have a rare one 
that doesn't do this, but you can't go around yelling 'Bullshit', or 
insinuate that people that they are unable to use them properly! People 
will snap back....

My major gripe with the Repeater is that you couldn't straight into 
overdub after recording the first part of the loop... which is one of 
the NECESSITIES for creating a seemless loop!
