[PD] best format for send/receive between iOS and libPD

I've got a six voice synth, each with about 20 variable parameters, and
then sequence data, etc... and all of this data is being stored by the
objective C front-end of my app.

can someone tell me, hopefully from experience, what the best format is to
send a lot of pattern data between obj C and libPD ???  should i package
all the data as one huge list, or break it all into individual variables,
or is it ok to organize it into groups for ease of management.

my plan was to send messages like this from obj C:

to [r instr1_pattern_data] :  [vol 0.8, pan 0.5, pitch 0.75, param1 0.99
... etc]

actually, i'm not the one doing the C coding, i'm, just doing the pd side,
but i have to prepare things on my end to make it flow as well as possible.
Overall, i think there about 1400 values that need to be passed for every
pattern, so it probably does need to be as well streamlined as possible.

cheers for any help
