I will need 200 instances in a poly~ to send 4 channels each, using
dynamic send~/receive~s : means 800 per poly~, and there’ll be a few of
them…

Will i encounter some MaxMSP limitations (please, don’t care about
hardware) ?

best regards

i had CPU saturation with nesting 200 instances of a simple file player ( using [play~] in a poly~, with only one output per instance.
this was on an older 1.66Ghz mac powerbook with 768mg of ram
you probably have more ram and a better machine ;)
