Strange behaviour inputting drum notation

Not quite sure what’s happening here. For context, I’ve set “Use percussion map” in Note Input and Editing options, and I’m inputting Kick drums with C2 (middle C being C4 in this case), side stick with C#2 and hi-hat with F#2. Each of these goes in fine by themselves but when I play all three notes together I get a random extra kick drum.

I don’t have this issue in “Staff position” mode but in this particular case my kit has hi-hat and tom 1 sharing a staff position, so unfortunately I don’t get consistent results when playing E5, sometimes I get hi-hat, sometimes I get tom 1.

Yes, there’s a bug in this area which we’ve already fixed in our development builds, so the fix will be included in Dorico 4 when it arrives.
