Default DTX 502 assigning sounds to cymbals

I just purchased the 562k yesterday, and i was wondering if i could assign 2 or more sounds to the 3 zone cymbal; for example, making the edge of the cymbal sound like china, while the bow and the cup sounding like like ride. Being a former acoustic drummer using 2 crashes, splash and a china it is just not very satisfying with 3 cymbal sounds. I've searched through a manual to see if there's a way, but i didn't manage to find one so i decided to see if i can get some help here

You can assign 2 sounds per zone on the DTX502 module. For example 2 on the bow, 2 on the bell and 2 on the edge so you will have 6 sounds on 1 cymbal pad. To get to the layer section go to:

Shift + Save/Enter: This will put into the menu section of the DTX502.

Rotate the data wheel to Kit Voice then hit the desired pad.

The layer option will be on the top right corner, select the sound for layer.

The hold Shift + Right Arrow to switch to layer B, then select the sound.

Also there are options for volume, tuning, etc per layer.

Let me know if this helps,
