Think of it more like an xacto knife and some splicing tape. The feature would take the knife and make two cuts, remove some small section of content; then the algorithm (the splicing tape) would join the two remaining ends from which the piece was removed.
So the thing that prevents the removed pieces from getting play time would be the fact that they are simply no longer there to be played :)
Now… what does this do to loop windowing? ;)
I'm still thinking square waves but now with a low pass filter. Isn't that the whatchacallit that would prevent the removed pieces from getting play time?

hahaha, unfortunately its not quite correct, since its not similar to undo, no backward but forward movement
so you did not like Disect? that would be rather precise, no?
OWN a word? I'd rather own "brother-sync" but that would be screamingly absurd :-)
