Chord symbols playback needs to use a separate channel rather than the attached staff instrument

Chord symbol playback, being dependent on the staff instrument, inevitably defaults to a sound which is not only innappropriate but also clashes with and drowns out the existing music on the staff.
So some overall controllability needs to be added: For example, a seperate channel in the mixer (Chord symbols?) so that the user can adjust the volume and the playback instrument. For example, a piano or guitar sound might be appropriate in many cases.
