Hello what would you add/modify in this definition of Multitimbral? (Wikipedia)

"An electronic musical instrument may be multitimbral,[1] which means it can produce two or more timbres (also called sounds or patches) at the same time. Instruments which may be multitimbral include synthesizers, samplers, and music workstations. A multitimbral instrument might be configurable in a variety of ways:

.- Splitting the keyboard at a given point allows a musician to play, for example, a bass guitar sound with the left hand and a piano sound with the right hand.
.- Layering timbres allows a musician to play, for example, a pipe organ sound and a string ensemble sound together.
.- Combinations of keyboard splits and layers may be possible.
.- An external sequencer might play an accompaniment of bass and drum sounds on the instrument (actuated through MIDI) while the musician plays a piano part on the keyboard of the same instrument."
