Percussion play back of tremolos

I have a solo snare drum exercise that uses the tremolo to indicate diddles (a double of 1 hand in the correct rhythmic pattern). I cannot seem to get the these tremolos to play back, and I am not 100% sure what I am doing wrong.

Most recently I am trying to add a playing technique for single slash tremolo under the percussion playing techniques, but I cannot see exactly what I am supposed to choose.

Here is the example I am working on:

Try altering the tremolo timing in Playback options (minimum number of strokes, and fraction of quarter note). Also slow down the tempo and you’ll get better results with tremolo.

I just that, and I got no change. Playback options seems to deal with unmeasured tremolos. These are precise, measured/metered tremolos.


I’ll need to check with Paul, but I have a feeling that we aren’t currently playing what we term the “intrinsic” playback effect (i.e. a playback effect that we carry out via changing the notes we play, rather than by using a keyswitch or controller to access another sound) for tremolo on unpitched percussion.

Gotcha! Thanks Daniel!
