Sizzle cymbal NotePerformer - wrong sound


I’ve noticed an issue with NotePerformer - when I try using a sizzle cymbal in Dorico, I get some kind of drum sound. It is definitely not a sizzle cymbal. Does anybody know how to fix this? Everything else works fine in NotePerformer, it only seems to be the sizzle cymbal.

The same thing happens if I start a new file with only a sizzle cymbal in it.

I had a similar issue with temple blocks; NP doesn’t include some percussion instruments. But Halion HSO does have temple blocks, so I made a new playback template combining HSO and NotePerformer. HSO also has some nice cymbals.
