Thanks a lot for writing and sharing the code. Further efforts, if any, 
will be really appreciated.

I did not intensively test it, but it looks very promising. Like the 
concept. An extra thanks for all the example patches.

Some short observations:

* When plaing the kid from a MIDI keyboard, there's an audible delay 
between releasing the key until the note gets cut off.

* Pedal hold gets recognized, but notes are only held until I release 
the last note. This way I cannot hold a note via the pedal and tweak 

Anyway, a great piece of software. A great addition to ALSA Modular 
Synth and ZynAddSubFX.


Best regards
