Even then it would be really hard to hit 128 in actual playing. Polyphony isn't a major consideration for solo piano in modern DPs. In older DPs, polyphony only really matters because low polyphony strongly suggests decays and sustains will be unnaturally short (so as to not overrun the polyphony). Even on old 32-poly DPs, dropouts weren't much of an issue for me but short sustains made for really unnatural and sloppy technique.

Just listen http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthre...note-polyphony-question.html#Post2546673 and you will be able to evaluate how much polyphony is required.

Note : when my VST has an unlimited polyphony, the voices counter doesn’t go higher than 128 from memory.
