the point is to overlap the sustained parts of the sound by overdubbing it 
a few times. the volume control is for smoothing out the attack so you 
don't notice it at all after the loop is recorded.

no, overdub only reduces the feedback while overdub is on, to reduce the 
likelihood of overloading the loop. More precisely, overdub only reduces 
the feedback while overdub is on and you are actually playing something 
into the loop.

where in the manual do you see it saying otherwise?
