Is there an alternative way to notate Hi-Hat roll in the 'standard' way - and have a more realistic playback?
Thanks in advance, TS

If you're using slashes, it's ideal to use a single slash so the note the slash appears on only plays back as a double-stroke.
For example, rather than a quarter note with 3 slashes, instead, write four 16th notes each with a single slash. On paper, they're both 9-stroke rolls, but the way Sibelius interprets them is going to be different.
