#12 Sample does not release properly

Chris Ison

Some sound samples do not release properly, instead taking much longer to release than they should.

    Investigation of this bug has found that the editor that created the sample is at fault. WildMIDI strictly sticks to the standard for the Gravis Ultrasound patch (guspat) files. Unfortunately some other players do not and some Authors of patch editors used those players as a reference for the guspat format. As a result some guspat files do not match the standard set by Gravis Ultrasound.

    To fix this I have now included a config file option: guspat_editor_author_cant_read_so_fix_release_time_for_me
    This is a global option and enables wildmidi to detect and use the patch files that cause this issue.

    This will remain open until it is certain that this fix does not cause issues with good patch files.

    while the best solution would be to tell users to find better sample files, this band aid works for those who need it.
