Better not call it an "effect", because it does not alter sound, but 
record it.
It can turn into your main tool, even replace a multitrack machine - at
least be much more important that any effect ever could be...
...the problem is that you do not know until you use one for some time!

true. This will also fascilitate to build sufficiant memory into a effect
box, so it can have additional loop functions.
