Well, yes, it was a pretty fundamental decision. Languages like
SuperCollider, Nova and Csound to some extent show, that dynamically
creating synthesis objects can work in a realtime system as well. But
with Pd, you indeed have to be careful what you do and first look into
different approaches to solve your problem. There are some ways around
it like write externals that can manage voices dynamically e.g. using
flext and SndObj. But anyway even when you have to create all needed
voices in advance, you already can do pretty big things in Pd.
