Is anyone able to explain what the advantage is to having lots of polyphony? I always hear people rave about X and Y synth because they have 16 voices or whatever, but what are the practical uses of this? Are there really instances where someone is playing 16 notes at once? I rarely come up with chords that use more than 4 notes, so even 8 voices seems like overkill.
Also, I have a Virus C, which has tons of voices (24-32?), but seeing as I sequence it with my Digitakt which can only sequence up to four voices, it seems the vast majority of them don’t get used, though I don’t feel limited in any way. Is there something I’m missing here?
