Really nice! Reminds me of Buzz

better looking ;)

I see your point. I guess it COULD be solved by wrapping all audio nodes  
in custom node objects or something similar. Not sure which is more  
practical from a code design point of view. Since there are probably lots  
of other stuff you need to keep track of in a GUI anyway, adding graph  
data to that representation might be manageable (e.g. since you already  
need to know the names of the node constructors, you could also supply  
your own in/out counts etc in the VisualNode() constructor)?
