How to creat custom Percussion in Dorico Pro

Hello dear team and colleagues,
I need to create a custom Windmaker single staff percussion which has to trigger MIDI note 48 in order to produce sound.
I tried everything I was able to find, but without any success. I can’t figure out how to make the newly created percussion kit to trigger this note.

Thank you in advance for the help! :slight_smile:

Best wishes,

You might find this post helpful.

You have to define a mapping between the playback technique specified for the notehead you’re using on the percussion instrument and the MIDI pitch required to produce that playback technique, which is done by way of a percussion map. In your custom percussion map you define the appropriate instrument and playing technique combination for MIDI note 48, then make sure that the percussion map is assigned to the appropriate channel in your virtual instrument via the Endpoint Setup dialog.

I just want to take a moment to thank you and the Dorico team. After 20+ years with Finale and many with Notion 6 (which i still like and use), I am very happy I purchased Dorico Pro. Even more importantly,
your active interest in-and support of us who use it-
is unparalelled in my experience. Thank you!:hugs:
