This doesn’t mean I don’t want a way to at least overlap the end of the 
loop. I just note that with only taps available, a phrase-oriented looper 
is probably best suited toward a rec/play/stop/play/stop/… sequence which 
is what the Boomerang currently offers. So, points for doing the logical 
thing but frustration when it comes to needing to get some overlap. I look 
forward to this thread turning into a solution.
