Not sure this is serious enough for this build, but using jackmidi,
when i playback a succession of notes of the same pitch and length,
i,.e, C5 minims, there's an accumulative effect (Each note is added to
the one before building up layers of multiple sounding notes). As if
the note offs for each note are not being sent as the next note is of
the same pitch and duration, with no break between notes. As the soon
as the pitch is changed, or there's a rest after the last note in the
sequence, the pattern is broken, the note off seems to be sent, and
everything returns to normal.

I've seen and heard this one in apps before, and it's usually fixed
with successive notes of the same pitch, butted against each other,
being given (user defined) a less than 100% duration (99, 98, 97%
etc., as not all sample libs respond in the same way to release
timing) during playback. This is common for large sample libs with
release and non release samples, so it's not just denemo as an app
that has had to deal with this challenge.
