Alternate time signatures was the only thing holding me back. Now I'm free to try some 7/4 and 9/4 rhythms.
All the other additions are icing on the cake.

Thank you so much for this update.

Well, 9/4 will be difficult.... our compromise solution doesn't work for everything... you can set the number of beats of the loops to use (from 2-8) from the existing loop content. So you can get decent approximations for some rhythms, but it isn't a universal solution. Doing dedicated loops for every instrument and every variation and every time signature would have been far too resource intensive, so we settled on this compromise for now.
