If a player is holding one or more individual percussion instruments, you can combine them into a percussion kit.

Procedure

  1. In Setup mode, in the Players panel, select the player whose percussion instruments you want to combine into a kit.
  2. In the action bar, click Player Settings and choose Combine Instruments into Kit to open the Edit Percussion Kit dialog.
    Tip

    You can also right-click players and choose this option from the context menu.

  3. Edit the new percussion kit.

    For example, you can change the order in which the instruments appear in a grid or on a five-line staff.

Result

A new kit is created containing all the instruments held by the player.

Note

If the player was already holding one or more kit instruments, all individual instruments and any other kits are combined into the first kit.
