I’m writing for drums and although I love how you can edit the drum kit, I find that a single configuration doesn’t work for a whole workflow for me.
For example: in some bars floor tom 1 is doing the same as the snare, or at least works in the same subdivision so I can program floor tom 1 and snare in the same layer while keeping the Kick drum and hi-hat in another Layer. But in some other bars within the same flow I snare and floor tom are working in different subdivisions so I need the floor tom to be working in a different layer than the snare.
Is it possible to change the layers in which any instrument belongs in the middle of a piece and how?
A possible solution that comes to my mind although doesn’t seem very elegant is duplicating or triplicating the floor tom with different layers and up/down beam orientation, and then writing the music as needed at every specific bar.
Thank you very much in advance!
