Switch~ is a friend. 
I also use csound~ for a lot of sound generation, and load different orc and 
scores with this. 
I do use a dual processor machine, so maybe that is why I don't have many 
glitches or  problems with loading in the middle of pieces.

Generally there are small pauses between pieces (applause?) in the kind of 
venues I play, so loading a new patch is also not a problem in that case.

On the other hand, I am trying to focus my main performance patch to a kind of 
limited generality similar to a tradional musical instrument. That is my 
background, and I don't change instruments every piece if I play 
acoustically.( I only know how to play 1.5 of those anyway)

But overloading a csound instance with a granular score to create digital 
noise is nice. Especially towards the end as the computer catches up and the 
noise disintergrates into a pure tone.
