Please can you explain to me how to input a staff with a drum set on it, and to then add the gm 129 instruments so they correctly play back - e.g. so I can input and playback both the short and long guiro sounds.
Please can you also explain how to just input a Guiro staff, and how to get the long and the short notes. I know they are midi 73 and 74 - but how do I input these so they play back?
I simply cannot understand any of the explanations on percussion maps, etc, that I have read to work out how to do this.
I setup my first drumset back in version 1.1 or 1.2? and that music still plays back correctly. In the Play window no individual percussion instruments are listed, just the one ‘Drumset’ row). But now, when I try to input a drumset, lots of rows for separate percussion instrument are automatically listed in the Play view, and I don’t know how to change any of them to a different sound from what is listed there - e.g. to playback other sounds such as the guiro. When inputing to Write directly from my midi keyboard I get the right sound, but what plays back is wrong - instead it plays back what is written as the original row instrument.
Also, when in setup I input a Guiro player on its own line, I don’t get any sound now at all, yet in a piece I did before, it did play back, although only as a short (73) note, not as a long (74) note.
So please can you tell me the steps to take to achieve both those things (1 and 2).
