Just a quick question for your MIDI gurus out there; what would happen if I send a series of "note on" events through MIDi to my synth (Ableton Live) but never send any note off messages? Is this akin to a memory leak?
If I'm only triggering drum samples and not pads (like strings or continuous tones) then would a sample play once for each note on message, then stop? Or would it continue to loop the sample over and over and over again?
Reason I'm asking is that I'd like to make a MIDI controller that does multiple drum sample triggering, but haven't figured out a way to send a note off message at some point in the future while I'm constantly polling my piezo sensors for data.
