Percussion: separating instrument's note values

Something I am wrestling with. I have entered a snare drum part in my drum kit. When I add the kick drum, it joins the two and makes the kick drum part, in my opinion, a bit more difficult to decipher. I want the snare drum to have an up stem with its note values and the kick drum to have down stems with its note values shown, not a lot of notes tied together and connected to the snare drum stems. Entering percussion in a drum kit is a weak point for me.

One sets that up in the Kit Editor.

It’s not that hard to search and read the Dorico Manual, accessible via the help menu at the top of the Dorico Screen.


Did that. Thanks. I’ll give it another shot to see if I missed something.
