On too many kits, "open" is still all jangly-cymbal-to-cymbal noise. I believe you need at least six degrees of openness (plus pedal and splash) - plus a good mapping. (Kontakt doesn't seem to be able to do the mapping I've managed in Sforzando for the Analogue Drums Tape Series Two hi-hats... but I can't stand the Kontakt UI so I may just be giving up too quickly.)

Oh well. Weird... I think that's all I can say on it at this point!
