A chord mode for audio samples

What is the problem?

The Play currently only plays back samples monophonically.

What do you want to achieve?

Similar to how the midi tracks are able to play back predetermined chords on external gear, this would be a great feature for being able to playback chords using tonal samples on Play.

Are there any workarounds?

A user currently has to transfer the sample they want to use on an external device to record the chord part, copy the recorded sample to computer, then copy this to the Plays micro SD card

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

As a workaround, it is possible to create the chords by using multiple audio tracks, each one with the same sample at the desired pitch, right?

@troxx Thanks for our wish. Unfortunately this is technically not possible, unless we occupy more tracks, as @icaria36 suggested.
