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!!
ha ha!

Hi Mark

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...
Overdubbing is recording on top of a previous recording, without erasing the last... usually by being on a different track...
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...)
