We've always thought about this with MIDI instruments. We have a sequencer that is telling the other things what to do - and the manuals refer to that as 'slaving' or the master and the slaves. Thought that was weird since I was little. It seems like the sequencer is like a queen and the modules are the drones, or the sequencer is the conductor and the modules are the players. Why wouldn't the main branch be the "root" ? or the "Trunk" since the branches branch off of it? or "core"?
