Voices Polyphony

Hello everyone, I have a request to know how many voices of polyphony can be played?
I’m sorry for my English, I prefer Italian or Spanish

Thank you very much

Hi @Alby62!

The maximum polyphony voices depends heavily of the engine/preset you choose.
Some engines that are very CPU-intensive are “limited” by software. For instance, we have configured a limit of 32 voices for Pianoteq.

Kind Regards,

Hi, thanks for the reply, in the future you can get to 64 voice polyphony?

Best regards

Nobody knows. The Rasbian needs to get far better than today to get 64 polyphony.
But you will be blasted by Pianoteq 32 voices already.

Sorry for late reply but it is also worth noting that Fluidsynth can play much higher polyphony. I think 64 note polyphony is quite achievable and there are some nice soundfonts available. (I am testing some out that I think we should consider adding to the library.)

Of course Raspberry Pi 4 may significantly change things…
