That's exactly the problem I tried to solve with Memento. Everything
is saved to one file. You can use the same patch with different files
for different "songs". I also save other things into Memento like my
midi controller settings, which might vary between pieces as well. 

You can read more about the background of my approach here:

Installation of Memento is a bit tricky as you need [prepend] in the
correct version (the one from Cyclone, not the one from IEM and not
the old one from GGEE, which will lead to an immediate crash btw. if
you try to use that one with Memento.) you also need zexy and OSC.
