this fine tune function has been created in the last few days before 
releasing, so its not realy ripe, just better than nothing :-)
No, the "DataWheel" is the the Feedback knob for coarse regulation.
It originally had the same CC as Feedback but then we thought this 
was confusing and left it without MIDI control.

No, only after you do a Record, which can be over several cycles.

Just like without sync, you:
- press Record
- fade the note in
- (after a while) press Overdub
- (after a while) fade the note out
- press Overdub
