Someone I know asked me about a problem he has with a program he is writing. I know nothing about his code, but he is writing a keyboard program, with the midi synthesizer in the sound api. what I do know is that he is using note on when a key is depressed, and note off when it is released.
I don't know what made him do it, but he decided to watch task manager as he tested this program (in eclipse if it matters), and the more keys he pressed the higher the memory usage of the program went, and didn't decrease.
I have no explanation for him, I recommended that he register here and ask for himself, but as he hasn't done it, I suspect he won't.
Does anyone know something I can tell him?
