I also used a Repeater for some years, but I never had this problem
with "a bump" at the loop point. Of course I adapted my playing to
the Repeater, in the way Stuart explains. So if I wanted to create a
seamless "pad-like" loop I first created the loop (eventually simply
silence) and then overdubbed audio into the loop. But even when
breaking this rule I never experienced "a loud bump" with my Repeater.
