sorry for the delay, i figured someone else would answer this.. ;)

depending on what kind of polyphony you need, this might come in handy:

specifically, if you need midi-style polyphony (separate note-on/note-off
messages), then nqpoly won't work for you "out of the box". it could be
hacked to support it though. the nqpoly intrument delegation stuff works
best when you know the duration of the event at the time when you trigger
