Re: What will become of the Repeater pitch stretching techology,I wonder

Well, to further clarify.. for me it's not that corrupted pitch 
manipulation is bad, it's that I prefer it to be ONE texture in a 
piece, rather than for it to become the overriding texture imposed on 
every subsequent overdub...

If the algorhythm were applied to the playback and left the input 
alone, I'd be happier.
