Here's the global mixer. I have an throw object that sets the throw targets ([rc-throw~] and [rc-throw2~]) so it's easy to send to the drusm channel , guitar channel, etc [rc-throw~ DRUMS]. I made the global mixer so as to have a reference point between song patches.

Well, I was influenced by the s-abstractons when I first started making gui abstractions. The rc-patches and s-abstractions are similar except for the fact that Chris wants to keep s-abstractions pd vanilla compatible and I don't want to jump through those hoops. However, I try to keep the number of externals I use down to a stable, core set (zexy, list-abs, etc) so it should not be hard to use in vanilla.
I mainly want easy to use, gui objects for song building etc that are state saving. I'm always checking out example patches sent to the list and adding things.
