What the EDP doesn't make it all that easy to do is bounce between "I'd 
like to close the loop seamlessly and hence I want to be overdubbing at 
100%" and "I want to add a new layer and fade the old material back". 
Certainly it can do that, but it's a multi-control operation as opposed to 
just having different modes of working.
