I don't know vinlet, is this new? vexpr~ is definitely something else.

vline~ and vsnaphot~ are variants of line~ rsp. snapshot~ that work
with so called "clock-delayed messages" to achieve higher timing
accuracy when receiving messages that originate from clocks, i.e. from
[metro], [delay], [pipe], ...

This way you can schedule e.g. an envelope to start in the middle of a
signal "v"ector.
