Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if that were true.

Yes, that would come down to voice cycling as well. There are a lot of
possible strategies for that, depending on taste and how complex you are
willing to get as well as how sensitive you are to inappropriate

I don't think either MIDI or Scala affects this matter all that much; as I
see it the core of the issue is that CPU resources are limited so we need to
conserve them. MIDI could still generate 128 * 16 concurrent notes if you
really wanted to and such amounts of voices will cause issues in any
realistic and practical system.

I may be misunderstanding your comment here.
