[fluid-dev] SoundFont exclusiveClass

The SoundFont spec (version 2.04) describes the “exclusiveClass" option this 
way: "when this note is initiated, any other sounding note with the same 
exclusive class value should be rapidly terminated.”

I hear this effect when I use the synthesizer included in the editor I’m using 
(Polyphone), but when I use Fluidsynth, I’ve noticed these irritations:

1. Fluidsynth seems to interpret “rapidly” as 750 ms after the new note is 
initiated.  I understand that it is a subjective word, but there are musical 
works for which 750 ms does not qualify IMHO.

2. If the sound of the instrument has not naturally decayed by the time 
Fluidsynth decides to cut it off, there is a distracting click.

I searched the list archives and issue tracker and came up empty.  Are these 
known issues?  Is there a work-around?

If you like, I could create a small soundfont and MIDI file to help reproduce 
the problem.  Let me know.
