    Technique: Cymbal roll without crash at the end

    I generally used the GPO cymbal roll (crescendoing using the mod wheel) with a crash cymbal at the end. I have a new arrangement where I just want to crescendo then let it ring, but the roll seems to stop faster than I recall a real cymbal roll not decaying nearly as fast.

    Any ideas? What have other people used to make this work?

    Thanks in advance -

    You are using "A5 - cymbal roll (mod wheel) with release hit" isnt?

    Appear that after the hit, it is inmediately muted. Maybe you can add
    • C#5 -piatti cymbal 2
    or
    • D5 - piatti cymbal 3
    or
    • D#5 - crash cymbal
    to the end of the note, that are hits that ring until they naturally decay.

    I believe that the D#5 - crash cymbal will combine fine with it, and with some reverb it will be ok.

    That's the roll. I usually do what you're saying, but unfortunately the Piatti doesn't work well in this case because the attack is different (two cymbals banging together) and the other cymbal hits sound like sticks on the cymbals - Ideally there'd be a mallet hitting a suspended cymbal, but I can't seem to find it.

    Thank you. I'm about to leave town for a week, but when I get back I'll install this, give it a spin, and post the results.
