>> That sound clearly gets louder over time. I suspect that your OS or sound card has a built-in compressor or limiter, which affects the output volume. Try increasing the volume of the midi playback and see if the effect goes away.

It’s an iMac. It doesn’t have strange sound cards with arcane settings you fiddle with. It just plays things.

Quicktime to record the audio coming out of the speakers, so you heard what I heard.
