Re: OT: Logic Zoom HELP!!!
You are right of course, but Just to be picky the first album I recorded was done on a Tascam somethig DS.. and it had something called SOS, Sound on Sound... this WAS overdubbing with the Erase head off... if you made a mistake you could do it again (cos really it was bounceing from left to right.. or something...) but once you were happy you couldnt go back... so.. scary, but I never knew anyother way at the time... so I er.. wasnt scared!!

HUH? Per.. where have you been..? Overdubbing is and has ALWAYS been a recording studio term, and absolutely NOTHING to do with looping... apart from the fact that OVERDUB is mentioned on certain loopers...
In the classic analogue tape based recording world overdubbing means: record a second track, with the same instrument. Analogue tapes never were able to record on the same track twice without deleting the first take. (ok, in 1974 when I was a highschool boy I glued aluminium foil on the erase head of my cassette recorder and made overdubbing that way, but this is another story...)
Overdubbing is recording on top of a previous recording, without erasing the last... usually by being on a different track...
