One work around for the release samples though; you can burn the new attack into the release sample on the WAVE file level. This way you are certain that the release starts the right way.
64 polyphony will become a problem when you start using the release samples, as they can double the number of voices playing simultenously. There is no real work around for this. One thing can be done; split the midi keyboard in two midi channels (below and above middle C) and send both keyboard ranges to different midi channels. Give each a seperate instance of EXS24 and voila, more voices!
