Default Glitching/chopping loops like the band Battles

If anyone is familiar with the band battles - math-rock, experimental, rock, etc.

They use Gibson Echoplex Loopers and sync them for nuts, crazy music. One of the guitarists often does some cool loop manipulation. Since the Mobius is based on the echoplex and seems to have a lot of features, I wanted to know if anyone here has any technique tips.

I'm experimented with the basic Mobius functions: Reverse, Speed, Divide.

Here is a video to battles playing:

You could add shuffle, stutter, & retrigger to that list for experimentation....
Not sure how much sync you'd want to retain (I do everything manually as a soloist), but I've come close to reproducing a 'one-shot sampler' technique using retrigger, & overdub with zero feedback; it doesn't quite do the same glitchy thing my old Arion DDS-4 pedal does, but it's close!

I'm working on a script right now that works in a similar way, it's basically a recursive script that toggles between replace and play with different wait times between. The idea being you put down a base layer of a drone of some kind then use the micro replace to slice in other noises, notes or chords, it's really simple code and you can alter the wait times to suit.

You can even put some rateshift changes in before the replace command to get some pitch shifting goodness.

Code:
!name Micro Replace
!autoload
#replaces short slices
set quantizeMode off

replace
Wait msec 15
play
wait msec 15
replace
wait msec 15
play
wait msec 15
replace
Wait msec 20
play
wait msec 25
replace
wait msec 100
play
wait msec 35
replace
wait msec 40
play
wait msec 45
replace
wait msec 50
play
wait msec 55
replace
wait msec 60
play
With a rateshift before the longest wait time:
Code:
!name Micro Replace
!autoload
#replaces short slices
set quantizeMode off

replace
Wait msec 15
play
wait msec 15
replace
wait msec 15
play
wait msec 15
replace
Wait msec 20
play
wait msec 25
rateshift -12
replace
wait msec 100
rateshift 0
play
wait msec 35
replace
wait msec 40
play
wait msec 45
replace
wait msec 50
play
wait msec 55
replace
wait msec 60
play
