I just got the pro cymbals for my rock band drums, and I have a few custom songs I've created that I wanted to make pro. I just have one problem that I'm running into:


Some of the hi hat notes in my songs are 16th notes with snare hits on 1 and 3. For these beats, on Regular Expert, I have to make the hi hat notes red and the snares yellow (to make it comfortable to play). But when I make the Pro chart, how do I make the red hi hat pad notes yellow cymbal notes?


For example: "Move Along" by All American Rejects has all of the hi hat notes as red pad hits on Regular Expert. But on Expert Pro, the hi hat notes are yellow cymbal hits. How do you let reaper know which notes are red and which one's are yellow? (I want to keep the Regular Expert version the same).
