Using Drum Roll samples in a drum map

Is there a way to “extend” the hit in a drum map so that I can show both individual hits, and held down rolls?

I have been developing some drum maps recently to aid my workflow. Really has helped but I’ve come across a complication.

Some of the sample libraries that I use have samples for a drum roll that will sustain the roll until a release trigger is received - i.e. press the key and roll plays, release the key and it stops. I wonder if I can use the drum map for these samples?


In the Drum Edito click the Show Note Length On/Off to show the Note Lengths.

Or if you setup the individual Snap Lengths for the Pitches, then you enable the Use Snap from Drum Map option then the MIDI Note Length will fill the Snap of the given Pitch.
