I noticed no one responded to this one and I think I have an idea of
what is going on. There are some routines to determine when a sample
has gone perceptibly silent and wont be making any louder sound in the
future, at which point a voice is turned off to save resources. My
guess is that this logic does not take into account loop and release
samples. So if the loop was silent, it would disregard the sample
data which follows the loop and assume that it will be forever silent.
