Polyphony, Edit Drum Kit Window (Ensemble Edition only)

Set the polyphony corresponding to the maximum number of percussion instruments that are hit at the same time in the original audio.  Assuming all the instruments are played by a single musician, the Polyphony should usually not exceed 4, since the musician has two hands and two feet and can only play one instrument at a time for each appendage.  In the case where one foot is occupied opening or closing the hi-hat but not causing it to sound, the correct Polyphony value would then be 3.
