# Raise or lower position of percent repeat counters by voice in Lilypond?

There is a very similar question; however, I cannot use its answer because it sets the \override PercentRepeatCounter.Y-offset = #-3 inside the \layout of a score block.

I need the ability to leave voice 1 with its percent repeat counter in its default position while placing the counter for voice 2 below the staff. The voices must share a stave, as this is for a condensed percussion part.

You don't have to place the override in the \layout block, you can (and should) place it in the \new DrumVoice (or whichever relevant voice) block:

snareDrum = {
\new DrumVoice {
\voiceOne
\set countPercentRepeats = ##t
\drummode {
sn16 16 8 16 16 8 16 16 8 16 16 8 |
\repeat percent 3 {
sn4 8 8 4 8 8 |
}
}
}
}

bassDrum = {
\new DrumVoice {
\set countPercentRepeats = ##t
\override PercentRepeatCounter.Y-offset = #-3
\override PercentRepeat.Y-offset = #-3
%\override DoublePercentRepeat.Y-offset = #-3
\voiceTwo
\drummode {
\repeat percent 4 {
bd4 r4 bd4 r4 |
}
}
}
}

\new DrumStaff {
<<
\snareDrum
\bassDrum
>>
}

• Thank you for including DoublePercentRepeat in there as well, as 90% of the repeats in this piece I'm engraving are two-bar repeats.
