To my recollection the stock PCM42 didn't have a sample mode, just an 
infinite repeat mode. This is confirmed by the PCM42 manual.

This is not what happens in PSP42. When you press "Repeat" it 
captures incoming signal but not the feedback effects.

I also find that I can't punch in new material without replacing the 
entire contents of the loop. One of the things I like to do with a 
looper is to go in and out of infinite repeat mode and add bits of 
new material to the existing loop. If you do this with feedback at 
zero it should replace the current looping material. If you do it 
with feedback turned up it should overdub the new material and mix it 
with the old. This doesn't seem to be possible in PSP42.
