[squeak-dev] Mac midi sound weirdness - it gets louder for first few notes.

What's making the actual sound come out? Sounds like you've figured the MIDI part out, and that isn't it. Are you sure it isn't some kind of default sound with an envelope or maybe even just a ramp of reverb to make crappy MIDI stuff sound a little more hot?

Seems pretty obvious that what you're hearing is in the VM. I'm just wondering which musician put it there and why. Fascinating, anyway. 

Can you share a recording of what you're hearing? May as well use my ears while they still work.
