The phrase comes from TV land when two- and three-tape-machine
editors began being called linear editors as you assembled things
linearly from the start.
All of our audio editors that I'm aware of: Audition, Samplitude,
ProTools, are all NLE (non-linear editors) by this definition.
This has nothing to do with transfer functions, but rather human
interface and operating modes.
