Setting default dynamics (loudness) of drumset notes

• Apr 27, 2017 - 19:22

Is it possible to set individual drumset notes (snare drum, cymbal, floor tom etc.) to a certain default dynamic (loudness) for playback?

I find my closed hi-hat sounding a bit too loud compared to the rest of the drumset. I could set a dynamic marker (mf, p etc.) on each individual hi-hat note, but that would take far too long and clog up my score


It's not currently possible to change the defaults. But you can search for other soundfonts that might come balanced more to your liking - see the Handbook under "Soundfonts" for more info.

Meanwhile, instead of using actual dynamic markings, far better to use the Inspector to alter the "Velocity". And starting with 2.1, it will be easy to select all hi-hat notes at once - right click, Select / More, Same pitch.
