Another technique that doesn't require multiple tracks would be to write
a script that does an instant LoopCopy/Sound from the current loop  
into the next loop,
but then returns you to the original loop.  So once you've got the  
groove built up,
hit the InstantCopy switch before overdubbing the A section.  Then
when you're ready to use NextLoop, you'll have a copy of the original
groove without the overdub.
