open hi hat

Hi just wondering how I get an open hi hat with the open circle. I looked on the Edit Drumset and it seems to Have the open hi hat on the wrong string and no open circle.


You can of course change the open hi-hat position assignment in that window to match your convention.
The Edit Drumset window is not able to pair this with an articulation as well, here's my approach:

  1. Edit Drumset
  2. Enter all notes
  3. Right-click one of the "open hi-hat" notes: Select > More... ; Same Pitch, Same Staff
  4. Click the "open" symbol in the Articulations palette.

The symbol will be applied to all those selected notes at once.

Not sure what you mean by 'wrong string" - drum notation doesn't use strings. maybe you mean, the staff line chosen by default isn't the one you personally prefer? You can change that using Edit Drumset - but do note the default is a fairly standard choice, it's not "wrong". But different editors use different standards to be sure, so if you are emulating the style of one who uses a different choice, that's fine. So, make the change in Edit drumset to get the note on the line you wish, then add the desired symbol from the palette.
