Max/MSP calls those "abstractions" https://docs.cycling74.com/max8/tutorials/basicchapter15 keep in mind that these tutorials, while viewable online, are more useful when viewed in Max/MSP's reference window.

With Max/MSP, you can listen to your patch as you build it. If you go to the Max/MSP menubar and click "help > reference > Gen > Topics > Gen" you'll find many useful snippets. The main benefit of Vsig is that you get to use proprietary Eventide modules such as the reverbs, delays, pitchshifters, oscillators, filters, and soon-to-be-functional transient_split. Plus you can download 1000 examples from the H9000.

fun facts: vsig has about 258 modules. gen has about 156 objects.

I should also mention that this requires Max/MSP, which has a 30-day free trial: https://cycling74.com/downloads
