[fluid-dev] Default sustain behaviour question

I have a basic question about the default behaviour of the sustain function.  I use the standard MIDI GM soundfont and select a wind instrument like 65 Alto Sax.  When I hold down the sustain pedal and play any note, the note is sustained indefinitely until I let got the sustain pedal.  Is this the expected behaviour?  By contrast, an instrument like 0 Piano will simply decay more slowly when the sustain pedal is pressed but will ultimately still fade away.  With a wind instrument, since the notes stay on, it quickly becomes a very loud cacophony of notes unless you quickly let go of the pedal.


Is this a property of the soundfont or of the fluidsynth settings?  What changes to the fluidsynth settings would I need to make to have a similar behaviour on the wind instruments than I get on other instruments (slow fade)?
