I have checked a bit with 'top -uR' what happens:

Each new key, which initiates a sound generator, adds in CPU power  
after being allowed to settle down and not producing sound anymore  
about as much as 3 times when as full program at startup time. So  
there is a quick buildup of from these idle generators.

Such a resource consuming problem might be fixed if each sound  
generator could turn itself to sleep. Say there is a cutoff-level, or
