Changing drumkit in a started song

Hi folks. I have a question: is there a way to change drumkit in a sarted song?
For example. I used a Pearl kit but I wanted to change with a Acoustic kit. Since the various components are placed in different positions, I have the kick in place of the hihat, another kick or a tom in place of the snare, and so on.

So instead moving all the beats in the pattern window placing them on the right component row, it would much easier and faster to move only the components without moving the beats row, but I don't know if it's possible.

Thank you for any help.

No, there is no easy way to do this.. Hydrogen kits are not following any fixed scheme and drumkit creators are free to use their own layout. Some kits have tons of toms, other kits are using only percussion instruments..

The only thing you can do is to create your own kits (which are all following some convention) based on the kits from the hydrogen server.
