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.
