I'm talking about the release version. The beta cycle has ended now.

The release version does not. The same virtual button is used for
alternating between Undo and Redo. The Undo button erases everything
that you've overdubbed since the last time Overdub was enabled. Your
original recording, and anything that was overdubbed in a previous
is preserved.

Well, in order to do that in software you should use Mobius.

First, Live 8 Looper doesn't have any Multiply, as understood in the
EDP context. Looper has a function though that multiplies or devides
the loop length by two. When multiplying the audio content is
duplicated. Second, Looper can not cue up loops like we do on the EDP.
