I'd use two or more sampleplayers and some kind of polyphony manager. The rj
library has two abstractions that make this very easy: [u_makepoly] creates
instances of abstractions passes as argument and accesses them through a [poly]
object, while [u_robinpoly] creates the instances and accesses them in a
round-robin-fashion. The advantage of the former is that you can turn instances
off again by sending "note-off" messages, while [u_robinpoly] just starts
abstractions. The latter is great to make drum-samplers.
