I imported an xml file and one of the instruments is a shaker pattern. It comes in to Dorico as a pitched instrument on a treble cleff staff:
I would like to convert that to an unpitched shaker pattern.
For now I created a new player with a shaker and copied the notes to the shaker. That worked fairly well, but is it possible to make it so the downbeat (what was a D# on the pitched staff) has an accent marking?
