[PD] binary sequencer / is there another way to do this?

attached is part of patch I am working on.

instead of storing the sequence data in an array, this patch reads it 
into a 16-bit number using a series of toggles. I'm just starting with 
pd and although I scoured the documentation, I'm not convinced there 
isn't a more efficient way of doing this. I chose to store the sequence 
data in a binary fashion because I want to modify patterns using bitwise 

if there an external that converts binary (say a packed string) more 
elegantly than this method, or is this something I should run with as 
the basis of a subpatch for a live interface involving a few 
sampler-playback modules?

thanks for your consideration
