    How to get a music box sound?

    I need to write a piece that starts with a music box (the kind with a little dancing ballarina that plays when the lid is open) playing an original theme of mine.

    I tried using a celesta and adding a bit of mechanical noises to it, but this wasn't convincing enough - it sounded like a bad recording of a celesta. Does anyone have a suggestion or sample library that has twelve tones of a music box sampled or any other ideas?

    Here are some samples from a toy piano, music box etc... in AKAI format (but CDXtract does wonders...)


    Then there is Bela D. Media with a Gothic music box which can be found here:


    Hope they're helpful...
