I would not recommend to use it like that.
Sure, in the studio, it means to add tracks, but to keep comunication
clear, I suggest that we keep the definition of the Overdub function
in the looping realm for "layering into the same sound file".
The main advantage of Overdub is that there is no limit for the
number of layers, so it can never be imitated with separate tracks
and I think it will continue to be a interesting function even when
we have several tracks.
