I think the Boomerang III's multitrack phrase sampler orientation pushes 
it toward having the pedals cycle as Record -> Play -> Stop -> Play -> 
Stop -> ...

It would probably be difficult to explain Record -> Overdub -> Play -> 
Stop -> Play -> Stop -> ... and inserting overdub into the cycle then 
leaves one without a good way to stop the loop.
