This issue I’m about to describe isn’t causing any problems as far as I’m aware, but I’d like to understand the reasons for it.
I have a project with drum set which is showing Up-stem Voice 3 as the default. The instruments in the kit are set to use voice 1. Right-clicking on Percussion → Change Voice → Up-stem Voice 1 doesn’t do anything (the selection stays as Voice 3), and Percussion → Change Voice → Down-stem Voice 1 moves the selection to Down-stem Voice 3. Percussion → Change Voice → Reset Note Destination Voice doesn’t make a difference either.
If I add a second drum set, this defaults to Up-stem Voice 1, although some flows default to Down-stem Voice 1 for no apparent reason.
Any notation I input respects the stem direction set in the kit, so this is not causing me any problems – I’m just curious about what has happened to voices 1 and 2 in the first kit (and why it seems I can no longer use them) and the reason the second kit doesn’t default to up-stem voices in all flows.
I’ve attached a cut-down version of the project showing these issues.
