Yes, Mobius has that. But even though it's also one of mine favorite  
chops on the EDP I tend to do it quantized i Mobius. But quantized to  
very small granular elements, like 128 8ths per cycle or so. I just  
find the result more musically interesting compared to a totally off  
sync granulation of the loop (not always though ;-)
