That's how I see it. You're in effect simulating digital, not true
I think a good way to visual this is the patch cables are the bits in your code to program this computer. These patch cables connected digital circuit modules and not analog circuits. Although it resembles the traditional method of connecting analog computers there wasn't any analog input being used there only digital signals.
