Here's something I've been missing, or maybe it is a feature request?

When I build music in AL by layering audio I tend to use the Freeze  
Loop button. Now, the problematic side is when working with long  
loops in this way, because after have un-freezed and played a note  
into the loop you have to wait for the next loop round to start  
before you can Freeze again. If you don't do that, if you freeze  
again too early, the added audio will not be part of the loop.

The way I would  prefer it is that any opening of the freezed loop,  
might it be only for a 64th note, should result in audio layered into  
the loop. (If you could implement it that way AG would gain a boat- 
load of loopers delight!)
