Drum kit part to seperate Perc parts
Posted by Peadar Townsend - 10 Jan 11:20AM
Hi all, Happy New Year!!
Wondering if it's possible or if there's a short cut/plug in to create a 3 stave perc part from a simple drum kit part? I've written a drum kit part for a piece and the school want the staves to be separated....
i.e. HiHat on a suspended cymbal line
Snare drum on a separate snare line
ditto with bass drum.

It's an uncomplicated part with no tom toms or tricky grooves, just a simple pattern repeated

If not I'll just go the copy and paste route but it would be nice to have a Perc part with the 3 lines on one page for 3 players....

Any help would be great thank you

You can create single line staves for snare, bass & cymbals, and make a new part containing all three. Next you need to filter each of the drum kit pitch-notes in turn and paste them onto the appropriate single line staff. However, you will undoubtedly need to shift the notes on the target staves to sit on the single staff line and, in the case of cymbal, change the note-head style from cross-head to normal.
