Hi , i would like to use one gui to control diferent gem subpatches, one per time, for example i have 5 gem subpatches each one with a different gemhead but 4 of them are turned off, each one of these subpatches has a set of recievers from the gui, so with the gui i just control the values of the subpatch that is turned on, but the 5 of them are recieving the messages from the gui, Is this a good practice in terms of computacional consumption? 
Or if there is a difference if i separate the receivers from each subpatch and just have one set of receivers for all the 5 subpatches and just route the messages from the gui . Which is the best way of doing something like this?

i ask this because this 4 subpatches turned off are still consuming cpu(they are very big), 4% por each turned off subpatch,  this isnt too much now, but im planning to add a lot of more subpatches , so this subpatches that doesnt do anything are gonna eat my cpu.  Which is the best way of doing this? maybe i should use dynamic patching? do you think is  a good option for what im trying to do?

any advice would be appreciated
