Note, that my example used [poly 1], which is a poly with just 1
single voice. It would definitly be a bit unexpected if poly *would*
allow more than one note at the same time at all in that case. ;)

If you'd have a [poly 2] or more than poly does allow overlapping
notes of the same key, it plays both on different voices.
