[PD] the fastest way to read/write a lot of information from memory/hard disk

i have a couple of sequencers with 16 steps and about 5 parameters for each
, and then a bunch of synths and drum machines running.

i have always used textfile for saving sequence and control data for such
setups, but if i have a hundred patterns or more, it gets really slow.  i
guess its something to do with the way textfile accesses the hard disk.
it's just not very efficient for large amounts of data.

what are my other options?
