35. Can I customize the drum kits in the HyperCanvas DXi?

Applies to: Roland HyperCanvas DXi, when used with Band-in-a-Box® or PowerTracks Pro Audio.

Yes you can.

For example, if you wanted to create a custom drum kit that uses a lower volume for the kick drum, you can follow these basic steps:

  1. Open the HyperCanvas control console in the DirectX window.
  2. Click on the Edit button for the Drum part.
  3. Select Kick drum by clicking in the Instrument Name field.
  4. Set the Volume a bit lower.
  5. Double-click on the Drum Set name and type in the name of your choice for the drum set that will contain the modified bass (kick) drum sound.
  6. Click Write, and save the drum set to any available space. For example, 002.
  7. Close the DirectX window. In Band-in-a-Box® or PowerTracks Pro Audio, choose patch 2 for your drum part. In Band-in-a-Box®, you will need to use File | Save Song with Patches and Harmony after selecting Drum Patch 2.
