this is what we call substitute now. In Loop3 its "rehearse" and can
only be reached at the beginning by Record-Insert (when
InsertMode=rhr) and you come out of it with either Overdub or Insert.
In Loop4 there is a InsertMode Sub which makes Insert do what you
invented by MIDI, exept that its toggeling or sustaining, depending
on how long you press!
