Okay, the devil is in the details.  I actually had a fixed array of N of
instruments, and would steal the oldest instrument if the limit was hit.
There are other strategies.  For example, you can have a soft limit that
allow any number noteOn's, but start ramping down the oldest notes to keep
the number of instruments at or below N.
