On noteOn context, the function , is useful to release previous playing note (with same channel,key ).

If I'm following you correctly, the big problem I see is that this behavior is *only* natural when a channel represents a single instrument, and maybe not even then, depending on how a given instrument/sequencer handles releases.

For unison playing, it seems like it would really screw up the dynamics, not to mention causing possibly noisy releases at unwanted times. Granted, fluidsynth's unison mixing, like that of virtually all synths, sucks (hell, that's practically part of the "synth sound"), but this doesn't seem like any kind of solution -- just replacing something that's, arguably, broken with something else that's even more broken.

Or am I missing something?
