Celeste High Notes don't Work

Post by PeteFine »

Anything higher than a written B above the staff has such a loud percussive thud that the pitch is often barely distinguishable. The high C and D often sound more like an untuned wood block.
NOTE: This is with the Transpose playback set to 12, which is how a celeste sounds- one octave higher than written.

Hello, I am in the process of studying music, can you explain more about the high C and D?

Draftercute,
My comments pertain to the Amadeus Symphony Orchestra sound library (whose Forum this post was in).
The C and D above the staff of the Celesta patch, when set correctly to sound one octave higher than written (the actual sound of a Celesta), has a very prominent percussive "thud" and the pitch is not very distinguishable. This has to do with the way the samples were recorded, not anything to do with the actual music or theory. The actual Celesta in ASO is quite nice except for those top notes.
