Lots of new toys included.

DW simply passes whatever you send (while changing patch numbers if
you ask it to).  I suspect you want to send a note off to all active
voices (or just all channels) when a user stops playback.  This is
what all the players I've messed with do.   If your software sends a
note on and exits without sending a note off command, a continuous
note is the correct behavior despite being very annoying.

> The other thing is that I can't seem to get the Roland Sound Canvas to come up consistantly. It plays sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. The Java Midi player plays fine. I know the Roland one is actually a windows feature but I think the problem is in DW's way of calling it. I may be wrong, I may just need to update the thing. When it does work, sometimes it stutters. I can then switch to the Java driver and it works fine, so it's not the incoming data that's stuttering.
