How about something equivalent to a “snippet”. It would be kind of like a patch, but instead of being encapsulated into a node it would open itself in whatever patch you call it from as a simple grouping of objects.
For instance, I use the LFO > Wavershaper > Map often, but I typically need to change a lot of the pins or need to add some additional nodes, so I don’t generally want to make a patch out of it. I could instead create a new node and type “LWM” and instead of a patch coming up, it would add the LFO > WaveShaper > Map combination as I have it saved in a file (maybe .v4s?). It would be almost the same as a patch, but it would allow you to customize the inner workings to fit your current project.
Is that making sense to anyone else?
