this is an interesting side-aspect indeed that goes beyond the generic
rec/play/fx fx/rec/play question.
Having the musician hear processed audio doesn't mean it has to be
recorded with FX though. It asks for a tight system (i.e. the
delay/latency of the processed audio is below the threshold of what is
acceptable by player).
I think what is sent to the musician must no be necessarily be the same
that is being recorded.
