As I work on the design of a hardware sequencer, I developed 
the following definition:

A sequencer is a device for recording and playback of signals 
with the possibility to arrange several recordings.

Recording can happen in realtime, step-wise or alternatively 
happen through programming.

The Signal can be audio or control data.

To arrange refers to repeating, putting into sequence 
and layering of recordings.

(A propably a bit rough translation from german)
