nice... but the Instant only does factor 2,3,4 not the free chop out I do 
with Unround, right?

I did not mean to change its time. 
since usually roughly the short is the rhythm and the long the harmony, 
its interesting to improve the rhythm after the harmony is done
and obviously quicker and more precise if done on the original track
to change the time of this base loop would be rather crazy to my ears :-)
- unless its a fraction of the previous time... rather Divide than 

I love UnroundMulti to create shocking new rhythms within the same sound 
and trying to imagine now, it could be even better to continue with the 
old harmony loop, chopped in a more delicate way...

hm... its not the same... so save a single loop with another recorder is 
less acurate and practical
I must say I love to record with the same laptop I loop on
and I would love to just insert an USB stick into the looper to have the 
whole performance, even in a more editable way...
its rather the play back funcion I question. also, it needs more UI to 
select the loop than just record

thank you, Per!
