Unpitched percussion in Play mode

Unpitched percussion instruments are handled differently in Play mode than pitched instruments. Instead of showing the usual piano roll view, the onset of each note on each percussion instrument is shown in the drum editor.

You can expand each instrument in a kit at the left end of the track header in order to assign that particular instrument to another playback endpoint. For example, you can assign instruments to another channel on the same VST instrument or MIDI output device, or to a different device.


The endpoint must have an appropriate selected percussion map.

Notes can be moved in Play mode by dragging them to the rhythmic position you want. However, like other instruments, you cannot move notes between percussion instruments, even if they are in the same percussion kit.


You cannot change the duration of unpitched percussion notes within Play mode. This is planned for future versions.
