In the song I'm charting, the drummer plays a disco-like beat using a tom instead of the hi-hat, and I want to reflect this as RRRRYRRR ... etc. To get a better understanding of my situation, a similar scenario happens in the RB4 DLC "Pompeii" by Bastille: https://youtu.be/Q_KdYTY1Lms?t=63

 

Obviously, I could just chart it as such and add tom markers for yellow, but this doesn't weight yellow as a snare, which is what I want. In a sense, I'm trying to mimic what disco-flip would do on regular drums. I previously thought the "noflip" events were what I'm looking for, but the RBN preview in Reaper doesn't reflect that.

During the "noflip" event, author yellow notes without the tom markers.
Right and right, left and left, spin and turn, and a great big smile.

The noflip is not displayed correctly in RBN Preview.

Actually, the tom gem(s) should be kept, otherwise the snare will be displayed as a yellow cymbal.

I'm not too sure what the issue is, or what you mean by weighted. If you're charting this pattern with pro drums in mind, doing exactly as you described (minus the noflip) is what you want.

On drums you fail faster and are scored more or less depending on which notes you hit or miss.
