radiaL allows for live recording into a loop buffer, and overdub 
recording. No undo. Once a loop is recorded you can slice and dice it, 
pitch/length change independently, apply a bunch of effects etc. radiaL 
will sync to MIDI.

You are right to a certain extent. radiaL was not originally conceived 
completely as a live looping tool. This functionality has been slowly 
added. I think that it would be accurate to say that the live looping 
functionality in radiaL is not presented as its primary strength, yet it 
exists, to a certain degree.

This simply by way of setting the record straight. In the interests of 
full disclosure - I work for Cycling '74 and one of my current projects 
is the ongoing maintenance and development of radiaL.
