Of course, but I'm saying: What if the virtual voice ID you're using was previously used.

My take: Re-use a voice-ID to cut-short the previous note.

e.g. you just hit the same key again.

e.g. Hit a piano key twice, you don't want two piano samples playing at once. So re-use the same Voice-ID.

... you'd -have- to send all the
parameters every time you want to start any new note. I mean, yuck.

In todays hosts, generally only Pitch and Velocity. The same parameters MIDI sends every time.

Not significantly different. Not any harder.

Anyhow this is just 'thinking out loud'. I doubt we can prove it conclusively 'on paper'.

We will build a prototype and evaluate the pros and cons.
