In all my Sib8 drum kits there seems to be no ride symbol. There is a symbol bell sound, a crash, and a Chinese symbol crash. The most common use of a ride symbol is to keep time, whether swing or straight 8ths, and it should have a couple of seconds of sizzle. Also a ride with rivets would be useful. Sib4 had a decent ride as I recall. Am I the only one who has this complaint?

I don't use a single line drum kit for playback. The cymbal and kick are not loud enough. There are ways around this but I just use three drum kit lines. one for snare and toms, one for kick, and one for cymbals. Change the cymbal note heads to "x" and move it up and down to get different sounds. One might be the ride you are looking for.
