This is a difficult question for all of us, and important when we explain
what we use to play a whole orchestra live, in nearly real time (or for the
manufacturers and stores: to explain it to customers).

It is similar to an effect only in its mechanic and electronic structure.
The musical function has nothing of an effect, since it does not alter 
I call it a RAM recorder, too. Spontaneous sound memory. Sound mirror.
But none of the expressions so far is explaining what it does to whom does
not know it.
Any suggestions?
