Cymbal Roll Ties

I’m curious if I can tie a rolled cymbal note to a non-rolled cymbal note, to indicate a release on beat 1 rather than there being a roll on beat one as well. Pictured below is what happens when I tie the two together normally.

I don’t want those slashes on the 8th note (quaver) on beat 1. Now, I can slightly get around this using a slur, but the engraving for that slur then visually needs to be nudged at the end there (which I’d rather not need to do for every roll I do that may look like this.

I’d appreciate any help on this. Thanks!

What you’re doing is one option: the other is to go into Engrave mode and select only the first note and apply the tremolo to that note only via the Properties panel.

Or in the case of a roll that needs tremolandi on multiple noteheads, select the final notehead in Engrave mode and set its Single Stem Trem property to None.

These are both extremely useful answers! Thanks so much!
