I decided to play Orange Crush on pro drums to figure out how they chart hi-hat rolls in pro mode. In the past, they made the hi-hat red and the snare yellow to keep you from having to cross your hands. I was hoping that they'd chart the hi-hat to the yellow cymbal and the snare to the yellow pad, but instead they charted it as normal (yellow cymbal hi-hat, red snare). That REALLY messed me up. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Hi-Hat Rolls on Pro = Hmmmm
With the regular kit, you can't reposition the hi-hat very far, so it will always be to the right of the snare. However, since it's elevated it's not too bad; you can hit the snare with your right hand (I'm right handed) without crossing over your left. The right hand pattern of hi-hat to snare to hi-hat to ride is tricky the new way that they charted it. In RB1 it was really easy to do.
" red should be snare, my concern would be the positioning of the high hat. Is there a decent amount of adjustability for the cymbals? I just realized this would depend on what kit you're using, and whether or not you have the New Cymbals. "
Oh, and I got another set of RB3 cymbals since my first set double-hit. Sure enough, one of the new ones keeps dropping notes. Son of a!!!!!
While the RB2 pack downloads, I'm going to get some lunch, come back, and do some keys!
This is really good news to me. I have the IONs, so I can kinda set them up however I feel like. That makes it easy to adjust if it feels off with that stuff. Still haven't played any drums on account of it being past midnight when I got home with the game. I definitely will today though!
