I could see how two voices might be enough in some cases.

It might be possible to use software synthesis to get more voices.

Here's a crazy idea: use interrupt driven mode to time CPU fetches from waveforms for four voices, but then use simple mixing of the fetched samples to create the desired left/right balance for each voice.

Probably isn't enough time, though, if output rates are high.
This is my point - doubling number of bits - one half dedicated to Left, second to Right - give a real panorama positioning - however probably was seen to costly when Paula was designed (low budget, problems, time constrains etc).
