definitely. you should use another channel for that.
you have note on/off messages. imagine the following :
your chords also play c#2, and holds that.
now youre playing c#2, all is well. but as soon as you
release c#2, the note off message appears and turns off
c#2, of course also in the chord. polyphonic means only
multiple _different_ notes, but not the same (i know only
very few synths that could handle this)
and even worse, some synthis switch the voice off if a second
note on appears without a prior note off ......
