I hear it that way too, and have the same complaint about the Scarbee as well, there's a choked feeling to the overtones. If you find a sampled Rhodes that has the shimmering quality of the real thing, what I hear as a chimey openness on the bell, please let us know.

What comes closest to my ears is the Korg SV-1, which has a nice bark too.
