Creating groups of instruments within grid presentation percussion kits

You can create groups of instruments within percussion kits that use the grid presentation type in order to have a better overview of the instruments in the kit.

In grid presentation percussion kits, the name of each individual instrument is shown in the staff label. You can simplify the staff label of grid presentation percussion kits by creating groups, for example, to show Wood Blocks instead of Wood Block (High), Wood Block (Medium), and Wood Block (Low).


  1. In the Players panel, expand the card of the player holding the kit in which you want to create groups in the grid presentation.
  2. Click the arrow that appears in the kit instrument label when you hover over it and choose Edit Percussion Kit to open the Edit Percussion Kit dialog.
  3. Click Grid at the top of the dialog.
  4. Click the first instrument you want to include in the group.
  5. Shift-click the last instrument you want to include in the group.

    You can only include adjacent instruments in groups.

  6. Click Add .


A group is created containing the selected instruments. The group is given a default name that you can change.
