No! not at all. What's being described is the ability to just define the
loop length but continue to overdub without having to ever leave record.
This is very handy for creating smooth drones etc. In some cases you might
only have one bar of source material available and you want to loop it with
a reverb or delay on it. In this case (if you couldn't just play the source
for two bars and record the last bar) you would have to record it once dry
and then use resample to record in the reverb tail or delay into the loop.
