There isn’t a cymbal fader included as a default.
The “OH_overhead” contains the cymbal.
However, the overheads contain sounds from the rest of the kit as well.
As a default, the sound is set rather high.
Select individual instruments, and adjust the mixed sound via “OH Level.”
The “Room Level” on the right has the same function.
Each kit instrument can be panned from the area showed in the red box.
There is one thing to be aware of here.
Depending on the balance/pan of the “OH” and “ROOM” sounds,
you can achieve a tighter drum sound.
