Having just watched Johns Discover tutorial on Jazz drum he starts by setting a slash on the ‘B’ line (if viewed as being in treble clef) as says it’s a wood block. John’s tutorials are always very educational but as these are meant for learning the information should always be factually correct.
Dorico drums do NOT follow the official GM specification for GM drum mapping and yet this error is allowed to persist. (It should be a low-mid tom)
This error makes users who work with GM midi file importation extremely difficult with playback being nonsensical. Could the team please acknowledge their error and fix this as soon as possible. Although we are on version 2.2 the drums have been wrong since version 1.0. From an educational standpoint those users of Elements, a version that might be favoured by students studying music are getting wrong information.
Some may consider this a minor fix but I suggest a program that states it follows GM specification for drums and clearly doesn’t is a major problem. I wonder what the feedback would be if instruments were in wrong transpositions and continued to be wrong from version 1 to date?
Large helping of Flute in Gb anyone?
