Saving files within a patch/device.

    Hello everyone, I'm wondering if it's possible to save files (like a wav and txt) within a patch/device, knowing that these files will be overwritten when the patch is used. For now, I've simply been saving the files in a folder and calling them from there, but I'd like to know if there's a more elegant way to do this. I already tried to freeze and consolidate the device, I'm able to recall files but not to overwrite them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      can't talk about live devices, in max patch one can embed for exampe coll, preset and similar object's data. but one has to save the patch prior to closing it in order to embed new data.
      Even short audio files can be stored in a patch, again by dumping sample values into any object that can store them. --------- In live, that seems more complicated, because amxd file is sealed unless one opens it for editing. -------- using max projects with consolidating files is only a different approach to store something in known path. Which I personally don't use, and prefer to form my paths to files without any dictation.
