The new direct audio device opens the audio device with MULTIPLE_OPEN access, so that it can be opened several times by the same process. However, the Java Sound Engine, which provides the synthesizer, does not open the audio device in MULTIPLE_OPEN mode. Thus, if the synthesizer is opened first, it is impossible to open direct audio device, e.g. for wave file playback.

This causes a regression with the Java Sound Demo - only MIDI files can be played back. The Demo opens the synthesizer at start-up.
