is there anyone having the same problem with hanging MIDI notes?
Sometimes the note plays forever, even when the track has ended.
I've searched specific for this problem in Reaper, but I found the same behavior in other programs, too.
Have you tried a different MIDI keyboard?
There's a SoundOnSound forum thread on hanging MIDI notes in Reaper - don;t know if it's of use / if you've seen it.

There's so many settings and so many bits of software and hardware combining to produce MIDI sounds I sometimes think it's a miracle it ever works!
I find if i go into Program properties and then the MIDI and VST sections in my DAW, the number of options and features that can be on or off or varied in amount are huge. Made more baffling for me by my not having a clue what most of it means.
Like the instruction to be on or off of "Don't send note-offs of pitch reset messages on stop/reset" - never knew it existed or could be an issue and am not 100% understanding it.
I hope you manage to track down your particular issue on this hanging note problem.
I take it that you get this problem using a variety of different VST's?
Does it occur with a variety of numbers of notes playing at the one time, or is it always when a large number of notes are played?
Maybe the vsti's handle the note off different (in settings I tried all possible combinations without success).
But I found a workaround
In Reaper you can add a volume envelope to midi tracks, so you can simply fade it out at the end. It still plays, but with zero volume.
