I'm getting an odd trailing echo/sound when I use the Glockenspiel in Amadeus with Kontact Player. I've tried several different settings but I can't seem to get a pure tone. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thx, mm

Hello mm,

Please send me an mp3 of what you're hearing.

I'm posting two short mp3 examples. I first recorded the Glockenspiel track in my DAW with Kontact/Amadeus. I copied the MIDI notation to another track and recorded it with the Amadeus Harpsichord instrument. You can hear an echo on the Glockenspiel track that sounds wrong to me.

I really like the Amadeus Harpsichord instrument and use it often. The instrument sounds very clean and responds appropriately on both attack and lift. This mp3 isn't the best Harpsichord example, but I include it to compare to the Glockenspiel track.

Thanks for listening.

I think what you're hearing is just the mechanical sound of the strike, on the higher notes especially, mixed with a bit of room reflection. I loaded up the Kontakt factory glock to compare, and the sound is there as well.
Clangorous or bell sounds are tricky to record, and you have to try to find a balance between getting too close with the mics, or being too far away. I wasn't there when this was recorded, but there do seem to be reflections coming from a nearby wall or another instrument. That said, I use this in arrangements often and have never noticed it. But then, I haven't used it in an exposed context.
