cymbals tapering off--weird

using kontakt 2-- back to back cymbal crashes are taperng off like a perfectly executed decrescendo.  but since i am working on the END of a show where the impact needs to be like ";rip a whole in the cosmos loud' this is not exactly the effect i am looking for.  i have tried different things like switching to ";lite"; instruments.  but even when i play the cymbal staff by itself it does this.  strange.  would love some input if anyone knows.....

thanks, chris

Let me know if that solves it.
Thanks Jim--that seemed to fix it!


Stay tuned for an upcoming library update that will fix this so you won't have to find it the hard way.
