the way i do it is to have a canvas lying around in my gui patch, where
i hide unused sliders behind. i have a synth whose controls i grouped
into 16 submodules. next, there is a vradio for selecting these modules.
on selection, a subpatch controls which sliders or radios are placed
where and with which label. just be sure to create the hide-canvas after
all your controls. actually more a dirty hack than a solution, but it
works, and keeps my screens less crowded.
