too lazy to hit Overdub during Record ? :-)

so how would you like that to sound?
like a dj lining up the record sort of thing?

I imagine a Kaos pad type controller, where as soon 
as you touch it the loop stops it's normal motion, and 
is "scrubbed" by the motion of your finger on the pad.
Playback resumes when you remove your finger.

the difficult concept is combining the multitrack idea (parallel) 
with the EDP type Nextloop concept(serial)

Does EDP ReplaceMode (Loop/Delay=rPL) cover this?
