It's possible that's what I was getting, actually, since the run was
done by hand, without standardization of strike velocity, and I may
have landed on the keys harder when starting the run.  (Also, my ear is
not good enough to be certain it was, say, the first six notes instead
of six of the first eight notes, or some such.)  I should try the same
thing via MIDI, so as to have exactly the same velocity on all the note
