i would go for "message" object.
"numeric" is wrong most of the time, "non-audio" seems clumsy, "data" is
equally true for audio-objects as is "dataflow".

personally is us "run" mode mostly.
"play" is a bit non-interactive; non-edit is so negative; perform(ance)
implies a performance boost rather than a different type of interaction.
