It depends :)
some people would "steal" the first note played and use it for the ninth.
Some will ignore the 9th,
Some will have an "overflow" so the 9th note would go out the MIDI OUT

For the PolyDAC, I did both the first and the second with the PolyDAC,
you just used a switch to switch between the two :)
