    yes but, a 'fake' piano will not react acoustically or harmonically like a real piano...unless otherwise programed to do so. And I do not think anything has THAT sort of poyphony.

    WOW thats pretty neat? ever heard of John Caged mods to the piano? He attached miscolaneus 'stuff' to make the piano a percusive instrument too.

    That's no problem and it has not directly to do with polyphony (which is no problem today either) but with velocities, aftertouch etc. You just assign several samples (quiet to loud) to a key, depending on the volume of the note, pedal or no pedal, etc.

    This makes a quite realistic piano.
