thanks Thomas, I would better look at your code soon...

let's assume first it is too sad to be true... switching
instruments in a massively multi-timbral setup should be
instantaneous too. Thus, currently, the number of voices a synth
patch has to pre-allocate is number of instruments times number of
voices per instrument. In many typical applications, this is far
too many. It would be much easier, if a once computed dsp chain
of an instrument definition could be reused as a voice-creating
